National Alliance of Wound Care

The National Alliance of Wound Care (NAWC) has introduced its advanced wound care certification in the specialty of diabetic wounds. The Diabetic Wound Certified (DWC) credential demonstrates a candidate's proficiency and mastery of essential knowledge and skills of diabetic wound management above basic wound care certification. The NAWC expects this specialty certification to help fill a need for certified wound care clinicians in the growing field of diabetic wounds.

"The DWC is the first advanced credential in the specialty of diabetic wounds and opens the door for advancement to thousands of certified wound care clinicians," said Debbie Hecker RN, MBA, WCC, Executive Director of the National Alliance of Wound Care.
