Helping to Fund the Future
WOC Nurse Stories Funded 6 Scholarships
Medela invited WOC Nurses to share their stories at WOCNext 2019. For every story that was shared Medela made a donation to the Fund the Future campaign raising a grand total of $15,000! That’s enough for 6 fully funded WOC Nurse scholarships for nurses wishing to attend a WOC Nursing Education Program (WOCNEP) Accredited by the WOCN Society and to WOC nurses wishing to obtain a higher degree. We are inspired by the dedicated WOC Nurses out there making a difference, and are excited to encourage those entering the field.
“Thank you Wound, Ostomy and Continence Nurses Society™ (WOCN®) for your partnership. We are happy to support your organization and such a great cause!” -Kevin Ackermann, VP of Healthcare at Medela

Why be a WOC Nurse?
Medela invited wound, ostomy and continence (WOC) nurses to tell their stories at WOCNext 2019. We captured these inspirational stories on camera and are excited to share them with you in our WOC Nurse Spotlight Series.
