Suturing techniques and closing of acute wounds

Nursing skills are that set of skills, attitudes and knowledge as well as the complex decision-making processes that allow professional performance to be at the required level at all times.

Thus, we can say that suturing is a nursing skill, included in the "Techniques" Dimension that requires us to develop the necessary skill whenever we encounter a wound or injury that requires a simple suture with involvement of skin and / or subcutaneous tissue.

This course enables nursing professionals to perform different suturing techniques, plan an acute wound and its resolution, and identify possible complications.


Identify the material needed to make a suture correctly.

Identify the types of wounds that can be sutured.

Know how to choose the right suturing material and technique for the wound.
