    wound care certification?

    I'm hearing alot of people in the nursing community talk about a  wound care speciality. I'm not sure once you get your certification, what that entitles you to? I read a recent blog on this website saying how their was a need in this field for it. Where do you get certified, and are there jobs in this field? I appreciate the input. I've only heard of this since starting my LPN clinicals! Thanks-

    The scope of practice for a wound certified LPN follows the scope of practice in the state in which you practice.  It offers a wondeful opportunity.  I have been wound care certified for 5 years and it has set my career on fire.  you can find information at www.wcei.net and www.nawc.org   good luck
