On this episode of WOCTalk, we sit down with Emilie Schlitt, BSN, RN, CWOCN, and Diane Bryant, RN, MS, CNS CWOCN, who work together at Brigham And Women’s Hospital in Boston, Massachusetts. Emilie and Diane share their experiences as a new WOC nurse and a preceptor and how they are working together during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Through this time of uncertainty, WOCN is dedicated to providing our members and the greater healthcare community with the resources and education needed to practice with all the necessary precautions to keep yourselves and your patients safe. We are so grateful for all of our nurses on the front lines during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Many of you are finding yourselves practicing on the front lines, in your usual role of being called to work in another staff position. Thank you for unselfishly carrying out the duties required in this pandemic. For a list of COVID-19 related resources, visit wocn.org/covid-19/.
