Do your students know about specialized wound care nursing careers?

As a nursing educator, you know that the need for well-educated, highly skilled nursing graduates and nurses seeking advanced education is urgent, with a cohort of specialists aging out of the workforce creating a significant clinical shortage.

The practice, and shortage, of specialty wound care nurses is even more urgent. With approximately 6.5 million Americans affected by non-healing wounds each year (and expected to rise), wound care nurses are increasingly in high demand.

We encourage nursing faculty to incorporate Why Wound Care?’s complimentary content into their lesson plans or assign for independent study to supplement current textbook information and inform students about the opportunity of pursuing this career path.
