As the WOCN® Society celebrates its 50th anniversary, the goal of this year’s Wound, Ostomy and Continence (WOC) Nurse Week is to celebrate the impact certified WOC nurses have made over the last fifty years!
During WOC Nurse Week, April 15-21, 2018, the Society will recognize WOC nurses for the services they have provided for fifty years to millions of individuals who suffer from non-healing wounds, ostomies, and urinary and fecal incontinence.
The Society believes the right choice to deliver evidence-based care are nurses educated by WOCN Society-accredited Wound, Ostomy and Continence Nursing Education Programs (WOCNEPs) and/or nurses who are certified through the Wound, Ostomy and Continence Nursing Certification Board (WOCNCB®).
