Wound Hero Scholarship Spotlights
Meet the deserving clinicians who have been awarded Wound Hero scholarships and the impact they are making on the wound care community.
"I am so grateful for this educational opportunity. I know the information I learn will help me provide the best possible care to my community and help those struggling with chronic wounds to heal, and live better, healthier lives."
"I am very excited to be granted the Wound Hero Scholarship. I can't wait to get my certification and use my new found knowledge to help my patients heal faster and reach their goals!"
"When opportunity reveals itself, don't hide or run from it, rather embrace and welcome it."
"I'm humbled and grateful for this opportunity to further my career as a wound care nurse and to have the tools to become certified and progressively competent in this ever growing field of medicine."
"I am honored to be chosen for this amazing opportunity. Becoming Wound Care Certified has been a personal and professional goal of mine for the past 11 years. I feel wound care is often a specialty that provides additional support for other specialties such as internal medicine. Our specialty not only treats the wound, but discusses at each visit: nutrition, medications, glycemic control, hygiene and offloading. These topics help heal the wounds and provide general health education. I am excited for the professional opportunity to represent wound care with a certification."
"I'm still in disbelief that I was selected for this opportunity. I have had the pleasure to work at Memorial Wound Care for 7 years. Starting out as an LPN Hyperbaric Technician, then as an RN case manager. Over these 7 years, I have learned and gained so much wound knowledge. Thanks to this scholarship, I get to put all that knowledge to use. I finally can achieve a career goal of mine to become Wound Care Certified. I am forever grateful and anxious to get started!"
"I read a quote by the author N’Golo Kante saying “It’s good to win awards but the most important is to win together.” When I win, we all win and in the long run, good things can happen. Compassion and passion go hand in hand and with both, good things can happen. I have the passion for wound care and compassion for people and with knowledge and becoming certified in the field of wound care, good things can happen!"
"I am so thankful for this Wound Hero scholarship to obtain my WCC certification. This certification will not only benefit myself, but it will also benefit all of the patients I care for living with chronic wounds. This certification will also allow me to continue to expand my knowledge and expertise is wound care which is my greatest passion."
"I am so excited to be given the opportunity to be educated and gain certification in wound care. I plan on using the gained knowledge to impact the lives of many skilled nursing residents by sharing my knowledge with my colleagues which will impact and improve resident care."
"Receiving this scholarship means the world to me! After 20 years of striving toward this goal, becoming a certified wound care nurse will greatly improve my skills and knowledge so I can provide the best, most effective care to my patients."
"Being able to receive this scholarship means the world to me and it will impact my career and how I take care of my patients enormously."
"I feel honored to receive this scholarship. My immediate community has a high wound rate and I enjoy being able to spread awareness and help to heal wounds."
"It is such an honor to receive the Wound Hero Scholarship. I am eager to further my practice and knowledge base and provide better healing outcomes for our patient population."
"I am a RN who is very passionate about wound care and wound healing for my patients. This scholarship will offer me the opportunity to expand my knowledge and expertise in providing the best care possible to patients."
