Comprehensive Wound Management Education

QSM’s certification program consists of online training covering:

  • Anatomy and physiology of the skin
  • Physiology of wound healing and wound closure
  • Microbiology of infected wounds
  • Pressure injury prevention
  • Wound assessment and documentation
  • Wound dressing treatments
  • Why wounds won’t heal – non-healing wounds

Upon completing your training, you will join a growing family of QSM Certified wound care nurses. Your “Gold Dot” certification pin is more than just a recognition of completion; it’s a badge that tells colleagues, employers, and patients that you’re dedicated to providing cutting-edge wound care. It shows you are an expert in managing wounds and relieving pain.

Online Certification For Individuals & Facilities

QSM’s certification program is fully online, and enrollees complete program modules at their own pace.

Nurses and administrators may enroll in the program whether or not they work in a QSM partner facility.

If you’re a facility operator and wish to have your nursing staff complete the certification process, contact us for details on how to get started.
