What Others Say Matters
“I have been working in the Wound and Ostomy Field since I obtained my WCC. As the full time Wound Ostomy Team member (working with two WOCNs), I have been told on numerous occasions from physicians that I am considered to be a colleague. I have won over even the hardest physicians with my assessment, treatment and skills! Nothing feels better than earning that kind of respect. Thank you to WCEI for opening the door! I just stepped though and my life has been changed forever!”
