Katy, former participant now working in a clinic in Papua New Guinea.

Bill Watkins, WMEP student.

Bill Wadkins, RN, BSN, pursuing wound care certification.

I was excited to find a program that had a wound care education road map from the basics through advanced wound care—all in one place. I began with a Foot Care course in 2014, took the Wound Management Fundamentals Course in Spring 2016 and am now excited to begin the Fall 2017 Wound Management Certification Prep."
