I am pleased to announce the launch of the WOCN® Society’s brand-new certification review courses in wound, ostomy, and continence. The Education Committee is particularly excited to launch each of these new courses, as we feel that they address the needs of individuals preparing for their 1st or even 5th certification exam. We have all been there and remember the anxiety of board certification and want our members to have the best resources to complement their brain banks with course information to be successful. This project involved in-depth research to address and close any gaps of information that you will need to sit for certification or re-certification.
Those who purchase the courses will notice the use of different media styles throughout each course; these new features were added to match each learner with the style that best fits their learning needs. We are also very pleased and excited to bring different speakers to highlight the information on each of the scopes of practice. We could not have put together this project without their perspective and expertise.
Key Highlights of Our New Certification Review Courses
- All three courses follow the exam content outlines that can be found in the WOCNCB’s Certification Exam Handbook and include information about how to prepare for the exams, along with test-taking tips.
- Each course includes study questions that test knowledge and comprehension–available within the presentation and via a downloadable supplement!
- Each course includes downloadable resources as well as audio presentations and links to additional tools to make studying easy to do on-the-go.
- All courses are available for Contact Hours and feature presentations by leading experts in the WOC nursing field.
Certification is important to market our skill sets to the populations that we serve. We know that your journey has been intense and stressful to get to this point. We all hear you….and we want to give you what you need to succeed. Once you are (re)certified, then the sky is the limit with what you can do. Board certification gives the credibility to you and the service that you give to your colleagues and patients. It gives you the opportunity to market your skills to others and educate them to join our incredible knowledge base of WOC nursing.
Whether you are preparing for certification or re-certification, good luck!
