The WEB WOC Nursing Education Program is delivered online from professional nurses, who are Board Certified in WOC Nursing and dedicated to supporting the WOC profession and the mission of the WOCN®. We promote and support the education of bachelor’s prepared nurses to become WOC Nurses in order to guide the delivery of expert health care to individuals with wounds, ostomies or incontinence.
The mission of the WEB WOC Nursing Education Program is to provide evidence-based education to nurses in the specialty of wound, ostomy and continence care, while emphasizing the significant contribution the WOC nurse can make in risk management, quality management, cost control and production.
Founded in 2001, the WEB WOC Nursing Education Program is the first online WOC nursing education program, and is fully accredited by the Wound, Ostomy, Continence Nurses Society® .
Accreditation by the WOCN Society® is a rigorous process that assures the consumer and learner that the program is compliant with established curriculum-based and administration-based criteria addressing such issues as admission requirements, faculty and preceptor qualifications, course content, expected clinical activities and experience, and the process of evaluation of the learner and the program.
Upon successful completion of the WEB WOC Nursing Education Program, you will receive continuing education credits for your coursework and a certificate of completion designating WOC Nurse Full, Dual or Single Scope status. With this certificate of completion you are then eligible to take the national certification exam to become certified in wound care, ostomy care and/or continence care.
WEB WOC has been an accredited organization by the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) as a provider of Continuing Nursing Education since 2016. Upon completion of the theory course work, learners will receive ANCC contact hours that can be used towards license renewal(s) and/or certification.
