Ostomy Care Associate (OCA) Program
The Wound, Ostomy and Continence Nurses Society (WOCN) developed the Ostomy Care Associate (OCA) Program as a continuing education program to further empower wound, ostomy and continence (WOC) specialty nurses and to improve patient outcomes by enhancing their ostomy team.
The OCA Program prepares non-specialty nurses to provide basic ostomy care.
Why Choose the OCA Program?
The WOCN Society is an accredited provider of CNEs through the ANCC and was awarded Accreditation with Distinction, the ANCC’s highest recognition.
Learn more about OCA Program by listening to "Introduction to Ostomy Care Associate Program" session, presented by Phyllis Kupsick, MSN, RN, FNP-BC, CWOCN, Chair of the Ostomy Care Associate Taskforce.
Development of the OCA Program was funded in part by an unrestricted educational grant from Hollister, Inc.
