Will I be Certified in sharp debridement upon completion of this course?
Upon completion of the course you will receive a “Certificate of Sharp Debridement” that documents satisfactory completion of an instructional program of sharp debridement and demonstrated ability to use sharp instruments in a skills laboratory setting.

The term “certification” is used frequently by health care professionals in describing advanced skill competencies. The Definition of certification is: successfully completing an examination that validates competence, knowledge and skill as a health care professional within a specific area of practice, as evaluated by a body of peers. There is not a national governing body or agency that oversees or regulates competency or certifies in “Sharp Debridement” in the USA.

The ability to perform “sharp debridement” is regulated by the professional scope of practice in the state you are licensed in and the facility in which you practice. Satisfactory completion this course will prepare you for performing conservative sharp debridement at bedside. Since we are unable to provide real patients for lab skills, you will need to have a qualified practitioner observe and document your skills on a real patient. And very importantly, you must function under your licensed scope of practice.
Note: Your ability to perform sharp wound debridement is dependent upon your state’s scope of practice and your facility's policies. See additional information at the bottom of this page.
