The Skin Wound Ostomy Certification is designed to bring the highest level of patient care to the long-term care community, which includes nursing home, hospices and home health patients.

Skilled Wound Care partners with The College of Long Term Care to administer the SWOC examination to nurses interested in studying best practice guidelines for chronic wound, ostomy, and skin conditions and then testing their knowledge base to qualify as an SWOC. CLTC is the certification body which administers the SWOC Certification exam and conducts oversight of the SWOC Certification process.
