Our Featured Wound Care Instructor

Catherine Koutroumpis, BSN, RN, CWOCN

Catherine-Koutroumpis-BSN-RN-CWOCN

Catherine is a Certified Wound, Ostomy, Continence Nurse Specialist with past history of unit based clinical and managerial experience; resourceful and initiative-taking with a strong sense of teamwork, intuition, and focus on a job well done who thrives in multi-cultural, diverse, and intellectually challenging environments. Originally from Pennsylvania, she moved to Washington, D.C. after college graduation and experienced an amazingly diverse and high energy life in our Nation’s Capital, both personally and professionally.

A decade and a half later, she moved with her husband to Mooresville, NC to enjoy the charm and pleasantry of southern life. Catherine was fortunate to be chosen as a recipient of the US Nurse Corps Loan Repayment program, and went on to mentor new graduate nurses under this same program. She has helped guide consistent levels of care for patients through the development and improvement of policies and procedures, always with the end users in the forefront of her thoughts. She is a Course Coordinator for the WOCN Society’s Wound Treatment Associate program, and extremely excited to bring such a worthwhile continuing education program to this side of NC state and beyond. Most recently is her return to Gardner Webb University (courtesy of the John Davis Scholarship) for an MSN in Education after plentiful positive feedback from colleagues and patients on being a “really good teacher”.
