Wound Care Nurses work with a patient's medical team to monitor the patient's wounds and healing process. They also provide direct care to the patient and promote healthy and rapid healing of the patient's wounds. Wound Care Nurses' resumes reflect responsibilities like assessing, treating, and monitoring patients' wounds, and working with the patient's physician to assess the appropriateness of antibiotic therapy, surgery or hyperbaric oxygen therapy. Nursing certification is the minimum qualification for work in this area, and sample resumes show that most Wound Care Nurses pursue additional board certification in order to become more employable.
