The WOCN Society is a professional nursing society, which supports its members by promoting educational, clinical, and research opportunities to advance the practice and guide the delivery of expert health care to individuals with wounds, ostomies and continence concerns.
As the WOCN Society continues to evolve and grow, the Society will continue to need high caliber member volunteers whose backgrounds, skills and experience match our mission and its current and future needs. Please consider nominating an individual(s) that would match the qualifications we are seeking.
The deadline for nominations is Dec. 17, 2015.
Please Note: Active members who are employed by a commercial industry that provides products or services as defined in the WOCN policy are not eligible to serve on the Board of Directors.
