Wound Care Education Institute

Monday, February 1st, 2010

Wound Care Education Institute (WCEI) was created to fill a need for wound care education that was not being met.

WCEI founding partners Nancy Morgan and Donna Sardina, both RNs with years of practice, identified many improperly treated wounds in their nursing careers.  They discovered that there was a great need for wound care specialization, but a significant shortage of qualified wound care professionals.  They also noticed a lack of available and accessible wound care education programs.

With their shared passion for healing, Nancy and Donna started a hands-on wound care consulting company.  Finding they couldn’t be everywhere at once, and there was a limit to how many people the two of them could help, they decided that a better approach would be to provide wound care education in order to train as many health care professionals as possible.  That’s how the Wound Care Education Institute – WCEI – was born.

The mission and philosophy of WCEI is to offer these unique attributes unavailable elsewhere in the wound care education market

  • To provide the highest quality wound care education possible, based on the most current standards of practice guidelines and evidence-based research.
  • To openly share knowledge by making WCEI’s training available to any health care professional seeking wound care education, and by not limiting the training to only nurses or those with bachelor’s degrees in nursing.
  • To focus on practical, rather than theoretical knowledge.  WCEI teaches its students what they need to know to impact care at the bedside.
  • To drive knowledge down to the bedside because it is at the bedside that healing care takes place. It is at that level that wound care education is the most effective.
  • To offer ongoing support to students beyond certification and to be an ongoing resource for standards of care in the wound care education field.

Our Skin and Wound Management Course is designed to provide participants with the best practices in wound care, the science behind healing wounds, and the most current standards of practice.  At the end of the course, for those that pursue wound certification the National Alliance of Wound Care® provides the  WCC® exam.
