Session Recap: Guiding Your Professional Future with the Scope and Standards for the WOC Nurse: Practical Application of the 2nd Edition of the Scope and Standards
During this conference session Carole Bauer, MSN, RN, ANP-BC, OCN, CWOCN, Kathleen Lawrence, MSN, RN, CWOCN, and Jody Scardillo, DNP, ANP-BC, CWOCN, presented a brief history of the development of the WOC Nursing: Scope and Standards of Practice, 2nd Edition .

They described the typical day of challenging WOC nurse consults in the acute care setting and demonstrated how the Scope and Standards of Nursing Practice supports daily practice. This was a creative way to present this material, and was well received by the audience. The speakers thanked all members of the Scope and Standards Task Force and included a very special thank you to Phyllis Bonham, PhD, MSN, RN, CWOCN, DPNAP, FAAN, for her assistance in the project.

Some key takeaways from the session included:
  • WOC Nursing: Scope and Standards of Practice, 2nd Edition is the foundation of practice and professional performance based on the American Nurses Association (ANA) Standards of Nursing practice.
  • ANA required a more in-depth review of the profession that included the elements of professional practice skills, expansion of population service, ethics, certification, standards with examples and many more.
  • WOC Nursing: Scope and Standards of Practice, 2nd Edition is a resource for supporting the importance of the WOC nurse role to patients, health care providers, administration and payers.
This session will be available to view online in the coming weeks through the Hollister Library Pass.
