How Do I Get Started with the OCA Program?

If you are a non-WOC certified nurse or ostomy care provider, then the OCA Program is for you!

If you currently work in a hospital, health care system or a home health facility, please contact your WOC nurse and ask him/her to become a WOCN-approved OCA course coordinator (application coming soon) to offer this Program in your healthcare setting.

Cost of the Program

Cost of OCA Program is comprised of two parts:

  1. Flat fee of $2,500 for a three-year Program license. This fee allows the licensing facility/individual to enroll up to 100 nurses into the Program.
  2. Participant license fee of $150 per each nurse who participates in the program.

The OCA Program is currently being developed and will launch in late 2017. For more information, please email oca@wocn.org and read the OCA brochure.
