Wound, ostomy, and continence (WOC) nurses are selfless individuals. From their everyday routines to their advanced understanding of compassion, these professionals are strong, smart, and independent—and it is our job to ensure those qualities are consistently supported, nurtured, and revitalized.


The WOCN Society welcomes you to our emPOWERment Center.


Our one-stop destination featuring insightful resources for your head, heart, and hands.


The emPOWERment Center is supported by an educational grant from Medela.

About our empowerment center

WOC nurses are absolutely essential and play a vital role in ensuring improved outcomes for their patients each and every day. As an organization comprised of WOC nurses just like you, we know how easy it can be to lose sight of the tremendous impact you make on a daily basis. Whether you are the only WOC nurse in your facility or on a team of many, your daily life can be stressful, especially when patient needs, scheduling demands, and challenging times are overwhelming and dimming your light.
Our emPOWERment Center is our way of telling you we’re here for you and you’re not alone.
