News from the Baltimore Affiliate


Welcome Members!

Our affiliate has a long rich history locally and regionally. We are committed to advancing WOC nursing practice, networking, and learning from each other.  We support community and member efforts to create evidence informed practice across the affiliate and beyond.  As nursing leaders, our goal is to “stand out in the field” for our patients, our institutions, our society, and ourselves. 
All are welcome to contribute to our growth.

About Us

As an affiliate we have a great deal to offer our members:

The Baltimore Affiliate represents a diverse group of committed nurses certified in wound, ostomy, continence, and foot care.  Our membership includes novice and expert WOC nurses with over 40 years of focused practice. Several WTA cohorts have been initiated by active Baltimore WOC Nurses.  A variety of practice settings are represented within our group including:

  • Industry
  • DME
  • Acute care
  • Home care
  • Rehabilitation/long term care

The Baltimore Affiliate is involved in local ostomy support group leadership, CCFA, UOAA, and external mission trips.  Members are actively engaged at the regional level including officers, fundraising, educational functions, and WOC nursing policy. Focused interests include transitions in ostomy care, cultural implications for the WOC Nurse, and advancing the practice by “passing it forward” opportunities from our seasoned members.

We welcome anyone interested in WOC nursing.  Please feel free to contact Cindy Walker-

We are very grateful for having such a cohesive affiliate whose members
volunteer their time for such wonderful events as this.
