September 06, 2017 - Skilled Wound Care
September 15th is Skilled Wound Care’s education day + recertification exam in Tampa, Florida.
Studies show that certified nurses make, on average, $7,300 more a year than those who lack certifications. Not only are there salary advantages, but certified nurses consistently report better job opportunities, higher job satisfaction, and last - but very certainly not least - better patient health outcomes. (Read all the details in Working Nurse - and get some great tips on studying for your next certification exam!)
The overall goal of the Skin, Wound, and Ostomy Certification is to bring the highest level of patient care to the long-term care community (i.e. nursing home, hospice, and home-health care patients). Your SWOC is valid for three years, after which you’ll need to sit for a re-certification exam. Many of the participants in our Education Days are recertifying, and find our morning of review very helpful before the exam!
Participants in Tampa will also receive 4 CEU’s, or Continuing Education Units. Don’t miss out! To reserve your spot in our Tampa Education Day (or if you have any questions), call our Course Coordinator, Nicole Berey, at (866) 277-2701 or email her anytime at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Skilled Wound Care is a mobile surgical practice committed to transforming the chronic wound care model in nursing facilities. Wound care experts make weekly bedside visits to patients in long-term care facilities, avoiding transfers to hospitals or clinics. Our expert physicians give patients the most up-to-date and effective wound treatments, and educate facility staff on how to help patients continue to heal quickly and effectively between visits. This model of collaborative care allows SWC’s physicians to improve patients’ lives and health outcomes, to empower nursing staff, and to raise public awareness. Skilled Wound Care, along with its nurse and nursing home partners, is working every day to positively transform traditional nursing home wound care.
