During this special bonus WOCTalk episode, we sit down with Kathleen Lawrence, MSN, RN, CWOCN, Scope and Standards Task Force Chair to speak about the Scope and Standards of Practice, 2nd Edition and the content from the special WOC Nurse Week 2019 rebroadcast, Guiding Your Professional Future with the Scope and Standards for the WOC Nurse: Practical Application of the 2nd Edition of the Scope and Standards.
This session focused on care coordination and collaboration by WOC nurses; ethics in WOC nursing, current issues and trends that influence WOC nursing; future considerations and challenges for WOC nursing; and standards of WOC nursing practice and professional performance based on the American Nurses Association Standards of Nursing Practice.
This session was originally presented by members of the WOC Scope and Standards Task Force during the WOCN Society’s 50th Annual Conference. These WOC nurse experts intrigued attendees with vignettes and practical application hints on how to enhance your professional practice by embracing the scope and fulfilling the standards.
This podcast, the webinar and WOC Nurse Week 2019 were commercially supported by a restricted educational grant from Smith & Nephew.
