What's New in 2015

 

You spoke and we listened! In order to provide the most valuable experience to our Annual Conference attendees in 2015 and beyond, we have made a few improvements to our program.


Here's what's new for 2015:

  • Call for Sessions: Earlier this fall, we gave our members the opportunity to submit session proposals to share their expertise and knowledge and become a speaker at the Annual Conference.
  • More CE available: Attendees have the opportunity to earn up 20.5 CE credits.*
    *with additional credits available for Pre-Conference sessions and industry supported symposia.
  • Earn extra credits in the Poster Hall: Attendees have the opportunity to earn extra CE credits by visiting the Conference Poster Hall.
  • More Advanced Practice sessions
  • Fistula Workshop offered as a two-part concurrent session*
    *Session O313 will be the first part; session O317 will be the second part and will focus on hands on skills. You will only be allowed to sign up for the second part if you attend the first, and the second part will come with an additional fee of $75.

Leave Your Mark Photo Contest

 

Have you received the latest issue of In It For You? If so, then you should have received your official Leave Your Mark Photo Contest vision board. Whether an educator, consultant, researcher, or administrator, each WOC nurse leaves their mark in a unique way. The WOCN Society would like our members to share how they leave their mark now, in 2015, and beyond!

 

Share how you are currently leaving your mark or plan to leave your mark on patients, their families, your colleagues, the WOC nursing specialty or the WOCN Society by writing on your vision board. If you choose to participate, snap a picture of you and your vision board and you will be entered to win a special prize. Your photo(s) will be featured at the Annual Conference!

 


Here's how the contest works

Members may enter this contest in one of the following ways:

  • Upload photo(s) directly to the Wound, Ostomy and Continence SocietyTM Facebook page using the hashtag #LeaveYourMark15
  • Tweet photo(s) using the hashtag #LeaveYourMark15
  • Email photo(s) to share@wocn.org

The contest will run until January 5, 2015 at 11:59 pm EST.

Please share as many photos as you would like but note that each person will be entered to win the contest only once. By entering photos into this contest you authorize the use of such photographic reproductions for any purposes including, but not limited to, educational and other public media as may be deemed appropriate by the WOCN Society.

The winner will be announced on Facebook and Twitter the week of January 5, 2015 and will also be mentioned in the January edition of the WOCNow.
