Course description

Vohra Wound Care Certification for Facility-Based Nurses: Introduction

The Vohra Wound Care Certification program was developed by Vohra Wound Physicians. Vohra is the largest group of wound physicians in the United States, with more than 20 years of clinical experience providing wound care services to more than 3000 skilled nursing facilities in 30 states, with thousands of patients treated every month. We believe every patient, family, nurse, and caregiver can be empowered through education. Hundreds of thousands of people have already benefited from this course and the knowledge we have shared.

As a physician-led group, we focus on delivering better outcomes by partnering with our facilities and building long-term sustainable relationships. Today, we support over 3,000 Skilled Nursing Facilities, visiting each weekly as expert wound consultants. In many cases, we also supply the patient’s wound care dressings through our integrated dressings program (DDP).We share our passion for wound care more broadly throughout the medical community –domestically and internationally –through our expert publications and technology platforms. Our mobile application includes an artificial-intelligence based wound care healing predictor. We created a dedicated online platform to deliver practical wound care education, which has been selected by many U.S. states as their preferred course.

Our committed physicians, long-standing partnerships, innovative technologies and relentless dedication to improving outcomes position Vohra to continue to serve more patients every day.
