Starting this May, the Canadian Association for Enterostomal Therapy will be known as Nurses Specialized in Wound, Ostomy, and Continence Canada (NSWOCC). RNs currently certified in this specialty, as well as those who successfully obtain or renew their certification, will be referred to as having wound, ostomy and continence specialty practice certification from CNA and holding the WOCC(C) credential. Learn more about becoming certified.
CNA is pleased to announce the release of its latest Choosing Wisely Canada nursing specialty list. This most recent list, Six Things Nurses and Patients Should Question, was jointly developed by CNA and the Canadian Gerontological Nursing Association (CGNA).
CNA is pursuing a plan to expand its membership beyond RNs and NPs by inviting licensed/registered practical nurses and registered psychiatric nurses to be members of the association. We’ve prepared articles and will host webinars ahead of the vote at the June 18 annual meeting.
