WCEI offers on-site and online courses in wound care and holds an annual Wild on Wounds conference for wound care clinicians nationwide. The organization was founded in 2002 by registered nurses Nancy Morgan and Donna Sardina, who noticed there was limited access to specialized wound education for health care professionals. It has now educated more than 25,000 health care professionals in skin and wound management, diabetic wounds and ostomy management.

“Skin is the largest organ in the body, and more than 6.5 million people in the U.S. suffer from chronic wounds,” Morgan said. “We have the ability to empower clinicians to make a difference in their patients’ lives. Becoming part of OnCourse Learning, which educates clinicians in 20 different health care professions, allows us to meet the educational needs of many more professionals.” Read the full story here.
