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.
Thank you to everyone who helped make the 2016 WOC Nurse Week a success. We appreciate all that you do, and we want you to receive the recognition you deserve!

Nightmares on Ste. Catherine Street
Have you submitted your scariest clinical case yet?
Add "Nightmares on Ste. Catherine Street" to your 2016 Conference agenda today and submit a clinical case that still haunts you.
This unique session will allow you to share one of your "nightmares" with conference attendees and have a group discussion to consider ways to manage your patient nightmare.
We are looking for members to volunteer for special projects. These projects include content validation, peer review, pilot testing, committees and special task forces.
We invite you to join our active and resourceful group. You may not consider yourself an expert or as having sufficient experience to be of service; however, the WOCN Society values your knowledge and encourages you to get involved!
Plus, if you are a current committee member, you can still volunteer to serve on a special project!
If you are interested in becoming a WOCN volunteer and enhancing your professional experience, please fill out this volunteer form.
