What are others saying?
“I know that education and credentials are the hallmark of clinical credibility. My job title as Nurse Manager of an Outpatient/Inpatient Wound Healing and Hyperbaric program holds an unspoken and spoken expectation of clinical knowledge in my specialty. While I continue my formal education, I knew that obtaining the CWCA® designation would give me the confidence to lead my team of wound care specialists. In addition, my commitment to pursuing this certification gave my team and colleagues a sense of my professional loyalty to continuing education and respect for literature.”
