The New England Region WOCN holds regional meetings three times a year in conjunction with educational conferences. Spring and Fall meetings are held in March or April and October, respectively, just prior to the education program. In addition, a regional meeting is held during national conference, usually in June. Watch the conference schedule for days and times.
Regional meetings provide a forum for discussion of professional issues affecting WOC/ET nursing practice and provide an opportunity to keep abreast of regional activities. Submit concerns to the New England Region President for inclusion in any meeting’s agenda.
The Connecticut WOC/ET nurses meet the second Thursday of the month from 3 – 5 pm, September through June. This 40 member area group meets for networking and support. The group serves as a forum for discussion of professional issues, clinical concerns and new treatments/technologies.
