Don't Forget That You're a Continence Nurse!
This year in San Antonio, be sure to check out the Remember the "C": Ya'll are Continence Nurses Series
. Many WOC nurses are dropping their continence certification due to feelings of inadequacy in continence assessment, management skills and lack of integration into their current wound and ostomy scopes of practice. This four-part series will give you the education you need to remember the "C"!
