Educating Today for Exceptional Outcomes Tomorrow

Educating Today for Exceptional Outcomes Tomorrow

The WOCN Society is proud to present Educating Today for Exceptional Outcomes Tomorrow, a program that helps to advance the Society's mission through several exciting programs taking place in 2016 and beyond.

WOC Nurse Core Curriculum Textbooks

Through the Educating Today for Exceptional Outcomes Tomorrow program, the WOCN Society has produced core curriculum textbooks in wound, ostomy and continence care. The long-awaited textbooks are based on the blueprint from WOCNEPs and cover the entire scope of the WOC specialty. These textbooks provide comprehensive coverage for new WOCNEP students and act as a reference guide for practicing clinicians. The textbooks are now available through LWW.
