WOC Nurse Week 2023
WOC nursing may not always be an occupation filled with glitz and glamour; but to us wound, ostomy, and continence (WOC) nurses star in the leading part of healthcare. Your commitment, expertise, and unmatched qualifications play a vital part in providing results and ensuring improved outcomes for patients. The show must go on, and WOC nurses know how to get it done.
As an organization of WOC nurses just like you, we know each WOC nurse is a star. This year for WOC Nurse Week 2023, April 16-22, we’re rolling out the red carpet to celebrate the role of a lifetime—the WOC nurse. We hope to give WOC nurses the recognition they deserve for shaping the future of healthcare and impacting the lives of others every day.
WOC nurses are advocates, caregivers, educators, experts, heroes, leaders, researchers, and so much more. As we celebrate WOC Nurse Week 2023, we encourage you to roll out the red carpet for the WOC nursing profession by:
- Proudly displaying your WOC Nurse Week poster
- Wearing your WOC nurse pin with pride
- Recognizing and celebrating with other WOC nurse colleagues
