Today launches the Wound, Ostomy, and Continence Nurses Week sponsored by the Wound, Ostomy, and Continence Nurses Society. Highlighting the important work of WOC nurses, the week also helps nurses in the field celebrate all they do for patients and their families.

WOC nurses treat patients who have unhealed wounds, ostomies, or urinary or fecal incontinence issues, so nurses who are in this field or who are considering entering this specialty will have many areas of focus to work in. Some patients receive care for these conditions throughout their lives while others might be going through the process of figuring out the best care for new conditions. Nurses interested in growing professionally as a nurse in education and in patient interaction will find this field particularly satisfying.
