Question:
Used to be CWON & now have bilat nephrostomies. There is terrible ignorance around home nephrostomy care, both in US, UK, and Canada per my Facebook group. This could be an opportunity to better educate the public. People are really suffering & say urologists explain nothing. Only info we get is from Interventional Radiology sometimes.

Question:
I am recertifying for wound and ostomy. I have 77 points under ostomy, having trouble finding more points. I want to ask if I can use the remaining 3 points for my involvement with new staff orientation, having nursing students accompanying me on home visits, on going staff education? My portfolio is due September 30th, I would like to submit it prior the 30th. Thank you.

Answered September 21, 2021
On page 25 of the PGP handbook, you can claim 1 point for every 8 hours of precept/orient/shadowing of nursing or other medical professionals. You will need a tracking form if you are audited.


Question:
Does recertification count towards CE requirements for RN state license renewal?

Answered September 21, 2021
Some state boards of nursing will recognize a specialty certification credential as having value towards the CE needed to renew a license. You will be able to contact the state board directly to inquire. The WOCNCB as a certifying board does not have the ability to issue CE.
