Our Fingerprints Don't Fade: The Difference is in the Evidence

During Wound, Ostomy and Continence (WOC) Nurse Week, April 14-20, 2013, the WOCN Society will recognize WOC nurses for the services they provide to millions of patients who suffer from non-healing wounds, ostomies, and urinary and fecal incontinence. The Society believes that the right choice to care for patients with wound, ostomy and continence needs are nurses educated by WOCN Society-accredited Wound, Ostomy and Continence Nurse Education Programs (WOCNEPs) and/or nurses who are certified through the Wound, Ostomy and Continence Nursing Certification Board (WOCNCB®). WOC nurses are highly prepared expert clinicians who serve in a variety of roles to enhance and facilitate care for patients including educator, consultant, researcher and administrator.

The goal of 2013 WOC Nurse Week is to spread the word and educate others that not all nurses are the same when it comes to the delivery of wound, ostomy and continence care. And the difference is in the evidence.

WOC Nurse Brochure: Our Fingerprints Don't Fade: The Difference is in the Evidence

This brochure, initiated by the WOCN Society marketing committee, provides an overview of the purpose, preparation (education and certification) and practice that makes WOC nurses the right choice. It also provides information about the certification process and credentials available from the WOCNCB and describes the eligibility criteria.
