About WCEI

Certification Course for WCC®, DWC®, OMS™
Wound Care Education Institute® (WCEI) was created by two nurses to fill a need for wound care education that was not being met.

WCEI founding partners Nancy Morgan and Donna Sardina, both RNs with years of practice, identified many improperly treated wounds in their nursing careers. They discovered that there was a great need for wound care specialization, but a significant shortage of qualified wound care professionals. They also noticed a lack of available and accessible wound care education programs.

With their shared passion for healing, Nancy and Donna started a hands-on wound care consulting company. Finding they couldn’t be everywhere at once, and there was a limit to how many people the two of them could help, they decided that a better approach would be to provide wound care education in order to train as many health care professionals as possible. That’s how the Wound Care Education Institute – WCEI – was born.

or accept the responsibility for changing them. By acting upon our
responsibility of advancing wound care knowledge to others we will strive
