GILLETTE, WY – Valerie Beck, registered nurse at
The Legacy Living and Rehabilitation Center, recently received certification as a Wound Care Clinician (WCC) from the
National Alliance of Wound Care and Ostomy (NAWCO).
Valerie is one of three WCC certified staff at The Legacy, allowing for
more in-depth assessment and treatment opportunities, as well as interdepartmental
collaboration on wound prevention and treatment for long term care residents.
She has worked for CCH for four years.
The WCC certification program provides participants with current evidence-based
education in the area of skin and wound management and upon completion
enables participants to accurately assess, document, identify and plan
appropriate and comprehensive patient treatment plans and interventions
for wound management. Certification is valid for two years, and individuals
must complete a recertification course to keep the WCC certification.
