Wound Care is introduced to pre-baccalaureate nursing students in Level 3 of their five-level nursing education. This has been a 2-hour lecture, followed by 2 hours of clinical focusing on dressings and practicing wound care on a manikin. The BSN students along with the Wound Care teams at UNMH and the VA expressed a desire to provide more education for interested students. This course is a work in progress; taught twice in 2019 in a 7-week intensive format. RN-BSN students and Level 3 and above pre-baccalaureate nursing students have enthusiastically signed up for the courses. The final project requires them to complete a poster, a 2 -page handout and an oral 3 minute presentation in groups of three. The Wound Care topics are preselected by the faculty such as: Pig Skin Grafts; Kennedy Ulcers; Maggot Therapy, etc. Examples of the student work and the class schedule will be shared in this poster.


This poster was presented during the University of New Mexico Health Sciences Center Education Day, 2019.
