Are the Wound Care Certificate and Continuing Education (CE) Credits nationally recognized?

Yes. Vohra Wound Physicians is nationally recognized as an authority in wound care. The CE credits are approved by Maryland Nurses Association (MNA) accredited as an approver of continuing nursing education by the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) Commission on Accreditation (COA). The ANCC COA accreditation signifies that educational activities approved by MNA meet national standards for quality continuing nursing education.

All RN licensing boards nationwide acknowledge and accept contact hours from accredited providers. The state licensing boards of California and Iowa have put some 'caveats' on their acceptance. Both the California Board of Registered Nursing and the Iowa board say that if the provider ENTERS their state and presents an activity, the provider must also apply to the that state's board for approval, in order for the nurses from CA and IA to use the contact hours for renewing their licenses. The CA Board of Registered Nursing considers internet learning and other types of home study to be out-of-state, unless the provider is located in CA. They are in Sacramento, and their number is 916-322-3350. The Iowa Board of Nursing considers internet and other types of home study to be in-state. Their number is 515-281-3255.
