- “The course content was both challenging and interesting... the advances and changes in treatment recommendations were fascinating. I recommend this material for both current handson nurses as well as those that are removed from the bedside... I learned so much and I have quite a bit of wound care experience.

- “I believe every nurse should familiarize themselves with Wound Care Essentials. Much has changed in treating patient wounds and the advancements made in treating them has had a significant positive impact in the healing of these patients.”

- “Well-organized, easy to read, good use of tables. Provides thorough information in easy to follow format. Good course for professionals involved in managing patients with wounds. Especially helpful for patients with chronic or complex wounds. Insights help guide care, anticipate needs and manage all aspects of patient care including psychological and physical needs. Also provides insights for cost efficiency.”
