Jill has been a WOC nurse for over 10 years and has more than 14 years of clinical experience. Jill began her nursing career at the Cleveland Clinic Main Campus in Cleveland, OH in the post‐op Colorectal unit before pursuing her Wound, Ostomy and Continence certification.
The CWOCN works with the patient to identify the most optimal location for placement of the urostomy based on guidelines developed by the Wound, Ostomy and Continence Nurses Society (WOCN) and American Urological Association (AUA).
Certification isn’t necessary to gain experience and work directly with patients who need this specific care — but it helps. Obtaining wound care certification solidifies a nurse’s commitment and knowledge in the field of wound, ostomy, and continence.
You should complete an ostomy program accredited by the Wound Ostomy and Continence Nurses Society (wocn.org). After this you must aim for certification. For certification needs you should refer to the Wound, Ostomy, Continence Nursing Certification Board (wocncb.org) and American Academy of Wound Management (aawm.org).
WOCN Program accreditation This program is accredited by the Wound Ostomy and Continence Nurses Society (WOCN). Students who successfully complete this program are eligible to take the Wound Ostomy and Continence Nursing Certification Board exam for certification as a wound care nurse (CWCN).
