NEW: CWS® Practice Test

Now Available Online»

AAWM is pleased to announce the offering of the Certified Wound Care Specialist® (CWS®) practice test. Available online, the CWS® Practice Test is to be used for the purpose of self-assessment by those preparing to take the CWS® Board Certification Examination, or otherwise wanting to refresh their medical knowledge and skills. 

The online practice test is provided for educational purposes only, to assist you in identifying areas of relative strength and weakness in the content areas that are assessed by the CWS® Board Certification Examinations.  While it is constructed to be similar to those exams, the online practice test is not intended to, and should not be used to try to, predict your performance on the CWS® Board Certification Examination.

It is not necessary for you to take the Online Practice Test prior to taking the CWS® Board Certification Examination. There are other review courses, and other methods of preparation available, and you should make an independent determination of which method would be most helpful.
