Dear Colleagues:

On behalf of the Board of Directors, I want to express our appreciation and gratitude for all that you are doing to deliver care during this time. As all of you are aware, this crisis is changing daily, and we are finding ourselves in difficult situations like we have never faced before. Many of us are finding ourselves practicing on the frontlines, in our usual role or being called to work in another staff position. Thank you for unselfishly carrying out the duties required in this pandemic. As WOC nurses, we are accustomed to working in less than ideal situations and developing creative solutions where no easy solution exists. Our practice was built by individuals who were faced with challenges, but they forged ahead. They were brave, inventive and resourceful just like you, because you are a WOC nurse! 

WOCN applauds all our members for their contributions during this time of crisis and we continue to support our members and advocate on behalf of our practice and the patients we serve. To support each other during this time, we have created a Covid-19 community forum. The Covid-19 Forum is a dedicated place for you to connect with each other to share your experiences and how you/your team/your facility/agency are responding during this critical time. 

Your health and well-being are top of mind, so please practice with all the necessary precautions to keep yourself safe while you are caring for others. 

With warm regards,
Stephanie Yates
