Our purpose is to support our members by organizing and sponsoring educational opportunities and promoting leadership, research and professional development with commitment to evidenced based nursing practice. We advocate for the delivery of expert quality health care to all individuals with a wound, ostomy or continence related issue.

About WOC Nursing:

Wound, Ostomy & Continence Nurses practice in a variety of settings, and offer a tremendous amount of technical assistance, comfort and support to patient, their families, and other members of the healthcare team.

The main duties of a Wound, Ostomy & Continence Nurse include:

- Healing wounds
