Rome Health wound specialist earns board certification

Rome Health wound specialist Jennifer Fields has earned board certification as a diplomate by the American Board of Wound Management in recognition of her extensive knowledge and specialized expertise in treating hard to heal wounds.

Fields works together with the center’s doctors and nurses to provide advanced wound care services at the Rome Health Wound Care Center at the Griffiss Business & Technology Park.

The certified wound specialist board certification is a formal recognition of a master level knowledge and specialty practice in wound management. The prestigious and rigorous certification in wound care demonstrates a distinct and specialized expertise in the practice, according to the American Board of Wound Management.

Fields joined the Rome Health Wound Care Center in 2016. A graduate of the St. Elizabeth’s College of Nursing, Fields earned both her Bachelor of Science degree in nursing and Master of Science degree in family health administration from SUNY Institute of Technology, Marcy.

“At the wound center we work together to develop the best plan of care to treat not only the wound, but the underlying conditions that are impeding the wound from healing,” the nurse practitioner said.
