If you have an idea of where you would like to practice wound care such as a hospital or clinic then find out what type of school they prefer you attend i.e Emory, Cleveland Clinic etc. Gold Standard programs, and what type of certification or degree they want. Do they want WOCN or WCC or WCEI? Usually, human resources will have those answers. If you just want to learn more about wound care see if you can shadow a wound care nurse for half day or full day.
