Welcome to the Wound Management Education Program. If you are an enrolled student, here’s a quick overview of how to start your coursework.
Log in at UWCNE.ORG
First, log onto the UWCNE.ORG website. When logging in, type in your username, not your email address. Now go to My Activities in the main menu and use the dropdown to select My Activities in Progress. Find your Wound Management Education classroom in the list. It should be near the top. Click the link.
Once you are in the classroom, you will see that course content is split into weeks and topics. For each topic, you'll usually have a reading assignment. You will also look at handouts, watch a video, and complete a self-assessment test and a short evaluation. You can go at your own pace, but try to keep up with the topics week by week. And be sure to finish the online coursework before you come to Seattle for the onsite portion of class.
To begin your online coursework, look for the mini-course labeled "Week 1: Web Resources for the Wound Care Specialist".
Let’s look at Web Resources now. You can check out the introduction here, read the objectives and look at the speaker's information. To start the activities for this topic, click Continue. Remember, you have to be logged in to see the continue button.
Once you click the continue button, you will see all the activities for Web Resources. Click on the first required activity. Depending upon your browser settings, you might see a pop up window or you might not. I have my pop-ups turned off. If nothing pops up for you, click the link here to manually open the activity. When you are finished with the activity, close its window and go to NEXT.
Continue through all the required items in the topic. When you have done everything, you’ll get a notice that the “Course is complete.” That means you are done with that topic! If you want to check your progress in a topic, you can go to Course Start Page and look at the icons. All the activities you have completed will be marked with a green checkmark and the label of “Review.” All the items you still need to do will be marked with “Required” in red.
Once you have completed the topic, you can return to the main classroom by clicking the link, “Return to course classroom.” You can also use the breadcrumb to navigate from a child topic to the parent course by clicking up here.
When you are done with Web Resources, you will return to the WMEP classroom and go to the next topic. Scroll down to the list of topics. Click on the next topic and continue to its activities.
There are five required assignments for this course. We'll remind you when to start an assignment. A week before the assignment is due, we will also remind you. For more information and assignment directions, please look at the Assignments area. It is at the top of the list of weekly topics. The assignments landing page includes a list of all the assignments and their due dates. You might want to print this page and put it in your binder. To start an assignment, click the Continue button
If you ever get mixed up about where you are in the course, you can check your progress status. Here’s how. Go to the WMEP classroom. Go down to the list of weekly topics. Then look under the titles of the topics. See this gray text? That tells you what is the next required activity you have to do in that topic. If the gray text says “Complete”, you are done with that topic! If you aren’t marked complete, go back into that topic. Click the continue button and then look at the icons. Are any icons showing a “Required” label? If so, you still need to do those activities.
As a reminder, here is a list of the requirements for this course.
- Five Assignments
- Weeks 1 - 6 (video, practice test, evaluation in each topic)
