Welcome to Japan ET / WOC Association

The association is a professional association of professional nurses founded in 1981 by several nurses who acquired ET nurse qualification abroad. After that, 20 years have elapsed, now we are a member who has completed education of WOC nurse abroad and is a WOC nurse (wound, ostomy, incontinence nursing) certified nurse accredited by the Japan Nursing Association. Currently, it has grown to about 360 professional groups, and from now on, 140 nominees nominated by WOC nursing nurses will be born annually.This demonstrates the high need and expectation society places on WOC nursing. On the one hand, maintaining and improving the knowledge and skills of the members’ expertise areas will be a major challenge for the future while delighting the increase of this member.

The purpose of this Society is “development of specialized fields and provision of quality nursing services”. In order to fulfill this purpose, the strong will of each member and the strong unity of the whole organization are indispensable. Because I am a professional organization with a history, I think that big support can be expected for the new member’s step. The “Japan Wound, Ostomy and Incontinence Care Study Group” sponsored by the Society will also be aiming to develop into the academic society in the future with a view to educational support aimed at improving members’ expertise and skill improvement rapidly We would like to work hard. To that end, we believe that it is important to strengthen the ties among the regional blocks established throughout Japan and make systems that can receive the support that each member wants. We sincerely hope that everyone will bring together high qualities and that you can focus on the development of WOC nursing.
