WHY YOU SHOULD JOIN US
Our membership is the premier destination for WOC professionals, with all levels of experience.
For an incredible yearly value, our memberships give you everything you need to succeed in your practice.
HANDLE EVERYDAY DEMANDS WITH RELEVANT WOC EDUCATION
A day in the life of a WOC nurse is demanding: patients are unique and situations are challenging, but you persevere because you’re dedicated to helping others. To make the most of each day for your patients and for your professional growth, education is essential. Our online and in-person education opportunities provide relevant, on-the-job instructions based on current best practices. With resources for every type of learner, you’ll be ready to handle whatever the day brings.
DEEPEN YOUR DEDICATION TO WOC CARE THROUGH ADVOCACY
You’re passionate about WOC care and about patient outcomes, and WOCN gives you a platform to influence public policy for both. Since 1968, we’ve advocated for WOC care, and today, are known by policy makers as the subject-matter expert. We have people paying attention to every aspect of WOC care, and pride ourselves on the significant strides we’ve made to policy. As a member, you can deepen your dedication to WOC care with a voice that will be heard and advocated for.
REACH YOUR HIGHEST POTENTIAL WITH CUTTING-EDGE SCIENCE
Advancing the practice of WOC care takes hard work, but that doesn’t stop us from spearheading the research or funding the investment. We facilitate and share evidence- and consensus-based research that advances WOC care and careers. Our members not only have access to this research but can contribute to it by participating in studies, attending conferences and webinars, and disseminating findings from podcasts, courses, and more. With research like this, you can elevate the care you provide, the career you want, and the professional you are.
FEEL THE POWER OF A COMMUNITY THAT CARES ABOUT THE SAME THINGS YOU DO
WOC nurses are special people. They’re fiercely loyal and driven to see their patients succeed. As the only WOC organization historically focused on nurses, we get you and we get that patient outcomes require an approach that considers the full care continuum. Through our education, advocacy, research, and networking initiatives that focus on the whole patient, we give everything we have to the practice and delivery of expert healthcare to individuals with WOC needs, just like you do.
