Wound, Ostomy, and Continence Nursing Certification Board
The Wound, Ostomy, and Continence Nursing Certification Board (WOCNCB) has awarded its 2011 Certification Grants to Andrea Roufogalis, BSN, RN, CWCN; Beth Williams, RN, BSN, CWON; and Kara Koelbel, RN.
"Both Andrea and Beth clearly articulated and demonstrated their clinical strengths and how certification by the WOCNCB helped them meet the challenges of daily clinical practice," said Marilyn Swindle, DNP, MBA, RN, CWOCN, chair of the WOCNCB Awards Committee. "The WOCNCB is delighted to award them with financial reimbursement up to $450.00 toward their recertification fees. We are especially pleased to present a grant to Kara, who will use her grant to sit for the CWOCN examination for the first time."
The WOCNCB Certification Grant was developed to publicly recognize certificants who are highly motivated, are currently in clinical practice, and who are in a position that will enable them to share knowledge acquired through certification with others in their practice setting.
