Wound, Ostomy, and Continence Nursing Certification Board (WOCNCB)

The Wound, Ostomy, and Continence Nursing Certification Board (WOCNCB)* provides a national certifying examination designed for entry level into the field for graduates of accredited educational programs. Board certification is highly valued as a means of credentialing practitioners of WOC nursing. Certification is valid for five years, after which re-certification may be obtained by reexamination or through the Professional Growth Program (PGP), which is based upon a point system derived from activities such as continuing education, program or project development, research, publication, teaching, involvement in professional organizations, and academic education.

To receive more information and to download the application form for the certification exam, please visit the WOCNCB's website.

*The WOCN Society and WOCNCB are two separate and distinct entities that work collaboratively to support wound, ostomy and continence nursing practice. Each organization has its own unique mission and goals and is governed by a separate Board of Directors.
