The Skin Wound Ostomy Certification (S.W.O.C.) is an exciting and fun educational program with certification exam, specifically designed for all clinical and non-clinical nurses, granted by the Skilled Wound Care Program via the College of Long Term Care. The focus of the course is on everyday clinical wound care issues. The goal of the SWOC course is to give nurses a broader and greater understanding of skin, wound, and ostomy issues, which occur in patients with chronic conditions. There is no requirement for a certain number of hours of wound care or treatment experience to join the course, but the course is appropriate for nurses working at hospitals, wound clinics, skilled nursing facilities, hospices, and home health agencies. The course focuses on increasing skin/wound/ostomy understanding in biology, assessment, prevention, risk identification, management/treatment choice, and documentation to comply with state, federal, and risk documentation. The goal is to improve health care delivery for patients and improve outcomes overall. Licensed nurses may register for the course or separately take the examination for certification. The cost of the course is all inclusive of books, fees, examination, and course lectures.

The course is an intensive and interactive experience, given by Dr. Bardia Anvar M.D., Henry Okonkwo Surgical PA  and other SWOC Course Staff of the Skilled Wound Care Program. This is a 3 day course. Knowledge, expertise, and experience are delivered, along with evidence based data on patient management. The College of Long Term Care is the educational body, which partners with the SWOC Course to ensure appropriate standards are met. After this course participants will be designated with the SWOC Certification in Skin, Wound, and Ostomy Care. Participants will be better equipped to manage skin disorders, assess/treat wounds, prevent skin breakdown, identify/treat/assess ostomy and gastrostomy problems.
