This hands-on workshop is designed for advanced practice nurses.  It provides a unique opportunity to obtain wound assessment and management skills useful in everyday practice.  You will learn techniques such as wound anesthesia, suture selection and digital blocks.  Participants will practice three different suturing techniques:  simple interrupted, running and mattress stitches.  All supplies will be provided including disposable suture kits that can be taken home for additional practice.  Acquiring these skills can enhance your NP's job performance as well as marketability.  Enrollment is limited in order to optimize the learning experience.
