Happy WOC Nurse Week!
Discover the Superhero Inside of You
Not all superheros wear capes!

During Wound, Ostomy and Continence (WOC) Nurse Week, April 14-20, 2019, the WOCN ® Society is  celebrating and empowering WOC nurses to discover the superhero that lives within them.

As educators, researchers, leaders, experts and caregivers, each WOC nurse has a unique set of skills that allow them to bring unparalleled quality and value to the lives of individuals who suffer from non-healing wounds, ostomies, and urinary and fecal incontinence.

We Want To Hear From You!
The WOCN Society recognizes that WOC nurses and other healthcare professionals have limited time during, and even after, working hours and we are dedicated to finding new ways to help you support your practice-- that's why we rolled out our podcast channel in 2018, WOCTalk. WOCTalk is your opportunity to learn more about advocacy, education, and research that supports the practice and delivery of expert healthcare to individuals with wound, ostomy, and continence care needs. 

As we continue to work on new content and interviews for upcoming episodes of WOCTalk, we want to hear from you!   Do you think you'd be a good guest for an upcoming episode?
