Empowering the Nurse Superheroes
Our goal is to empower the nurses to be the wound care superheroes we know they are! At Archangel, we understand that change starts with the nurses on the front line, doing the physical wound care and evaluation every day. We want to give them the tools and the knowledge to be successful no matter the wound or the environment. As a result, we have created a comprehensive, ten module wound education program that provides education and training in a variety of necessary wound care skills. In addition, an eleventh module includes a unique ostomy education for home health nurses.
The STEPP Method: A Complete Wound Education Curriculum
Jen Bierhup (RN, WCC, CCM, DAPWCA, FACCWS iRNPA) , Executive VP of Clinical for Archangel, designed a patented and innovative approach to wound evaluation. The aim is to simplify evaluation and charting, while providing a more sophisticated understanding of the early warning signs and symptoms that can stave off more severe complications. Her STEPP© method is recognized as a critical innovation in wound care and has been taught to hundreds of home health nurses across the country. STEPP© provides nurses in the field with an easy to utilize tool that helps aid in evaluation, assessing and charting wounds effectively.
