WOC NURSE WEEK 2020
During Wound, Ostomy and Continence (WOC) Nurse Week 2020, April 12-18, the Society is empowering WOC nurses to reflect on and celebrate the impact they make in the communities they serve around the world. As educators, researchers, leaders, experts and caregivers, each WOC nurse has a unique set of skills that allow them to make a world of difference in the lives of individuals who suffer from non-healing wounds, ostomies, and urinary and fecal incontinence.
The Society believes the right choice to deliver evidence-based care to these individuals are nurses educated by WOCN Society-accredited Wound, Ostomy and Continence Nursing Education Programs (WOCNEPs) and/or nurses who are certified through the Wound, Ostomy and Continence Nursing Certification Board (WOCNCB®).
As we once again celebrate WOC Nurse Week, we are urging each of our members to reflect and celebrate their unique skills that enable them to impact outcomes and improve patient care around the world, each and every day.
