Wound management and the promotion of healing are complicated and challenging to those suffering with such maladies. Whether wounds are acute or chronic, nurses are the clinicians most intimately involved with the care and ongoing evaluation of wounds. Nurses working in acute care, rehabilitative, long-term care, home health, and outpatient settings all contend with a variety of wounds at different stages in the healing process among all patient populations. Thus, the nurse in general practice must have a solid knowledge of wound a care and potential impediments to healing.

Whether wounds are acute or chronic, nurses are the clinicians most intimately involved with the assessment, care, and ongoing evaluation of wounds. Key components for success in wound management and improving outcomes are: possessing a fundamental knowledge of wound etiology and the cofactors contributing to wound formation; understanding the physiology of healing; applying critical assessment skills; implementing evidence-based standards of care; and completing thorough documentation. Nurses must possess knowledge related to key concepts and principles of the structure of the integumentary system, how it repairs itself when damaged, and when it requires assistance to heal. The challenges of wound healing have long been known and are based on anecdotal cases, personal preferences, and now evidence-based research.
