Because of the awareness of the growing need for wound, ostomy and continence (WOC) nurses throughout the world and a strong belief in the continued growth and success of WOC nursing, the Wound, Ostomy, and Continence Nurses Society™ (WOCN®) has established a program to award educational scholarships. The partial scholarships are made possible through contributions from individual members, wound, ostomy and continence product manufacturers, private and public donations, endowments, and regions and affiliates, which comprise the WOCN Society.
The WOCN has established a program to award educational scholarships to deserving individuals who are committed to working in the specialty practice of wound, ostomy, or continence nursing. Scholarship applicants must hold a current certification from the Wound, Ostomy and Continence Nursing Certification Board (WOCNCB®) to apply. Scholarship applications are accepted twice yearly, on May 1 and November 1.
