- Jan 3, '09 by KimT08The easiest thing to do is to call the largest hospital near you. Most all large hospitals have a wound care nurse. You can either ask if they have a wound care center or ask to speak with the wound care nurse. You should not have any trouble finding a preceptor if there is a large hospital near you. I wish you lots of luck and congratulations!
- Jan 4, '09 by WV_heart_RNgo to WOCN.org that is the society for wound ostomy and contience nurses. They have a listing of all the nurses around the country. You could contact from that list. On that website there is a list of preceptors and what programs they precept for but I am not sure how to navigate to it. I was in the members sections when I saw it.
I would recommend you join if you are going to be a WOC nurse. I went through WEB WOC. THey will ask to join too. Good luck in the program. It moves very fast!
