Applicants can choose from eight WOCN®-accredited WOC Nursing Education Programs (WOCNEPs) in the United States. Accreditation by WOCN® guarantees the student that the program meets established criteria regarding admission requirements, course content, clinical experience, qualified faculty and student/faculty ratio.
Upon successful completion of a WOCN®-accredited WOC Nursing Education Program the nurse is awarded a certificate designating WOC nurse or specialty status. This qualifies the nurse to take national board examinations to become certified in wound, ostomy and/or continence nursing.
