Why Wound Care?


There are approximately 6.5 million Americans affected by non-healing wounds each year, and this number is expected to rise due to an aging population and increases in the prevalence of diabetes and obesity.

Wound care nurses are increasingly in high demand with a large cohort of specialists aging out of the workforce creating a significant clinical shortage. With high demand, comes higher salaries and better job opportunities for incoming wound care nurse specialists.

The FREE educational resources you’ll find, compliments of Why Wound Care, have been developed by leading nurse educators within this field. They wish to “give back” to future generations of nursing students and recent graduates who are motivated to learn more about chronic wound prevention and how to provide optimal care for patients who have a wound.
