Last fall, the Alabama WOC nurses successfully hosted "The Future of WOC Nursing in the Capital of Dreams," in Montgomery Alabama. More than 150 nurses attended the educational sessions and networked with colleagues and over 70 vendors in the exhibit hall.
Congratulations to all of our winners at conference. The Alabama WOC Nurses proudly selected Deborah Thedford-Zimmerman for the Alabama State Recognition Award. Vicky Bryan was happily surprised (by colleagues and her family) to be awarded the WOC Nurse of the Year Award. Our conference scholarship award winners were Leah Coulter, Misty Edwards, Candi Haggard, Beverly Higbea and Karen Sanders. Our first-place poster winner was Rhonda Sullivan for her poster "Successful Implementation of a Virtual WOCN Patient Access Program Positively Impacts Healthcare in the Post-Acute Setting."
