The NSWOCC and WOC-Institute developed the paced online Skin Wellness Associate Nurse SWANTM education program as a means to support and empower NSWOCs and improve clinical outcomes by enhancing wound, ostomy and continence care teams. The SWANTM program prepares non-specialty nurses to provide basic, bedside wound, ostomy and continence care.
New in 2021, the Skin Health – Practice Enrichment Series includes competency based, beginner programs in wound, ostomy and continence, intermediate skills labs and advanced programs. The courses are state of the art, self-paced online programs which are facilitated by a team of CNA certified NSWOCs.
I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you and to the Wound Ostomy and Continence (WOC) Institute and to thank you for your interest in WOC Nursing. The Wound, Ostomy and Continence (WOC)-Institute is owned and operated by the association of Nurses Specialized in Wound, Ostomy and Continence Canada (NSWOCC) (formally the Canadian Association of Enterostomal Therapists (CAET)). Our tri-specialty is unique, and we strive to improve the lives of those patients cared for by wound, ostomy and continence nurses as well as support those healthcare professionals who have chosen this dynamic and evolving field through providing comprehensive education and skills-based training to improve their practices.
The WOC Institute offers various competency-based, programs to assist healthcare professionals in improving their skills and understanding of wound, ostomy, and continence, with both online and in person learning opportunities. We encourage you to explore the various educational opportunities we have to offer. If you have questions feel free to contact firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
