WOCN: Around the World in 40 Years
Date:4/7/2008

of every three Americans are overweight or obese and one out of every eight deaths is caused by illnesses related to being overweight or obese. Conditions related to obesity include urinary stress incontinence and infections following wounds.

WOC Nurses deal with a multitude of issues in many different settings. What has and continues to define WOC Nurses is their ability to rise to the challenges presented within the larger context within which they operate.

The Role of the WOC Nurse

The role of a nurse specializing in the care of patients with wound, ostomy or continence disorders is multifaceted, challenging and rewarding: coordinating patient care in complex environments, using skills in science and technology, customer service, critical thinking, advocacy, decision-making, managing, communicating and creative problem solving.

Bringing it all together is no easy task. The WOC Nurse's knowledge, leadership and commitment to caring make it happen. And for support, continuing education and professional resources, WOC Nurses turn to the WOCN Society.

About WOCN

The WOCN Society is a professional nursing society that promotes educational, clinical and research opportunities to advance the practice and guide the delivery of expert health care to individuals with wounds, ostomies and incontinence. Membership includes more than 4,200 healthcare professionals who are experts in the care of patients with wound, ostomy and incontinence. For more information about the Society's 40th Anniversary Celebration, which is scheduled for June 21-25 at the Orland World Center Marriott in Orlando, Florida, go to http://www.wocn.org.
