Wound, Ostomy and Continence Nursing Certification Board
Since 1978, over 6,000 nurses have chosen to obtain certification by the WOCNCB. These dedicated nurses have played key roles in countless stories that showcase how their presence positively impacted patients and families. Individually, these stories are a tangible illustration of the value of these specialties, but when woven together they form a tapestry of the incredible power that is nursing.
By joining the ranks of these elite nurses, you will stand in very good company. The WOCNCB credentials are recognized throughout the world as The Gold Standard for Certification®.
The WOCNCB strives to maintain the highest standards by supporting the most comprehensive form of education, a combination of both classroom and clinical experiences. Nurses who elect to certify with the WOCNCB bring to their patients, their employers and their profession, an appreciation of the magic that can happen when the very best of science is seamlessly blended with art. These certified nurses are changing the ever-evolving evidence base with their research and the artful application of the science to improve the lives of their patients.
