WCEI by Relias Healthcare Education

About the Wound Care Education Institute® (WCEI®)

In 2002, experienced nurses and consultants Nancy Morgan and Donna Sardina noticed a disturbing trend in healthcare. Nurses and other healthcare professionals were passionate about wound care, but access to specialized wound education was either non-existent or limited.

Determined to find a way to improve wound care outcomes and practitioners’ careers, Nancy and Donna combined their shared passion for healing by creating hands-on wound care training and structured wound care education classes. The Wound Care Education Institute® mission is to impact the lives of both individual practitioners, and the patients in need of wound care.
