Wound, Ostomy & Continence Nurses Society Focuses On Preparing the Next Generation of Leaders
Date:3/31/2009

During Awareness Week. April 12-18, WOCN Society Emphasizes A Special Calling: Knowledge ... Leadership ... A Commitment to Caring

MOUNT LAUREL, N.J., March 31 /PRNewswire/ -- With a majority of its nurses nearing retirement age, the Wound, Ostomy and Continence Nurses (WOCN) Society is urging its members to respond to a new calling this April - training the next generation of WOC nurses.

During National Wound, Ostomy and Continence Nurses Week, April 12 - 18, the Society will recognize WOC nurses for the services they provide to millions of patients who suffer from non-healing wounds, have ostomies, and endure urinary and fecal incontinence. But with nearly 60 percent of WOCN members nearing retirement age, the Society is asking: "How can the WOCN Society ensure that future generations of nurses are trained adequately to respond to the specific needs of WOC patients?"

To answer this question, the WOCN Society will begin promoting mentoring opportunities and encouraging professionals to share skills and expertise to equip a new generation to carry on the WOCN commitment to caring.

The Pivotal Role of the WOC Nurse

WOC nurses enhance the quality of life for individuals who are debilitated by chronic and acute wounds, ostomy conditions or continence disorders. The profession traces its roots to 1968. The field eventually evolved from ostomy care to include patients afflicted with chronic and acute wounds caused by pressure ulcers, diabetes and venous insufficiency, as well as individuals suffering from fecal and urinary incontinence. To ensure that quality patient care continues seamlessly, it is imperative that the field recruit new specialists and equip them to carry on the work of their predecessors.
