President's Message

Welcome to the NC WOC Nurse Group website. Reflecting on last year, we had a very successful Bouncing Back, Wound, Ostomy, Continence and Foot Care Conference in Winston Salem. Thank you again to all the who attended and participated to make it special for the State of North Carolina. Another occasion was the Annual Run for Resilience Ostomy 5K for the UOAA held in Durham, North Carolina. It was a rainy, muddy day, however another success for all! Raising over $20,000 this year.

The new officers, Cat, Janet, Paula, and I, have two main goals. First, increasing the attendance at the quarterly meetings, as well as having a virtual option for those that cannot attend. Secondly, the Goal has been to have the meeting all over the State of North Carolina, we want as many of the CWOCN to come and join in sharing education opportunities, networking and supporting each other. Let’s have fun!!

Janet Jensen is our new secretary she will be working diligent to keep the website up to date with accurate information regarding our meetings, membership list, membership application/dues, preceptor list. There is also a NC WOC Directory tab. If you wish to be on this list, please send Janet your information.

We have speakers lined up on  August 2, 2024, in New Bern, NC, restaurant location to be determined. Be looking for email updates or refer to this site for details. I look forward to seeing you all at future meetings.
