Ostomy Care Associate (OCA) Program

Ostomy Care Associate (OCA) Program


Welcome to the OCA Course

The WOCN Society developed the Ostomy Care Associate (OCA) Program as a continuing education program to further empower wound, ostomy, and continence specialty nurses and to improve patient outcomes by enhancing the general ostomy knowledge for the entire nursing team. The OCA Program prepares LPNs, RNs, and other licensed clinicians to provide optimal care in ostomy, fistula, and percutaneous tube care, and function as an invaluable extension of any WOC nurse team.
