The Wesley Community recently had six RNs take part the Wound Treatment Associate Program developed by the Wound, Ostomy and Continence Nurses Society (WOCN).  The Wound Treatment Associate (WTA) Program was created as a continuing education program to further empower wound, ostomy, and incontinence specialty nurses and improve patient outcomes by enhancing their wound team. The WTA Program prepares non-specialty nurses to provide basic , bedside wound care.  Graduates of the WTA Program who hold a nursing license are eligible for the WTA-C certification exam provided by the Wound, Ostomy and Continence Nursing Certification Board.

The program takes place over 12 weeks and concludes with an exam on the information covered, which all of our RNs passed with grades between 90 and 100! A recognition luncheon was held October 18 to recognize their achievements.

Congratulations to the RN’s who completed the course! They are:

Glenn Jones, 2 Springs
Melissa Brown, Nursing Supervisor
Britni Thompson, 5 Springs
