No new enrollment is being accepted into the Wound, Ostomy & Continence certificate program at this time.

Wound, Ostomy & Continence nursing incorporates principles and practices that promote, maintain and restore health for persons with wounds, ostomies and continence problems throughout their lives. WOC nurses specialize in the care of individuals with disorders of the gastrointestinal track, genitourinary and integumentary systems. The WOC Certificate includes two didactic classes and one practicum. The track meets all requirements by the WOCN specialty organization and thus allows graduates to sit for the certification exam.
