Dr. Beuscher was on the initial Foot and Nail Care Nurse Exam test development committee with the Wound, Ostomy Continence Nursing Certification Board (WOCNCB®). She currently works in the podiatry department for Doctors Making House Calls, a home-based multispecialty practice providing care in homes, independent and assisted living facilities through out North Carolina. She is a very active volunteer leader of the WOCN® Society, functioning as the Lead Nurse Planner for the Society and the Foot Care section editor, a new addition to the Journal of Wound, Ostomy and Continence Nursing (JWOCN).
