Attention WOCN members! The North Central WOCN region was presented a donation for $2000 in memory of Frances Demo through her estate to be distributed to an up-and-coming WOCN nurse. In her will, Frances specifically requested distribution of the funds to a person in the process of obtaining WOCN certification. The preference is that it be a Wisconsin resident.
The next application cycle for funding will close November 1, 2023. Please encourage anyone currently enrolled in a WOCN program to apply. If you know someone who is contemplating enrollment, now is the time. We will need proof of enrollment in a WOCN tri-certification program sent along with the application. 1 applicant from Wisconsin will be selected to receive the additional $2000 memorial grant. If we do not get an applicant from Wisconsin this cycle, we will hold the funds for one more application cycle. If we receive more than 1 applicant that meets all the requirements, the NCR WOCN board members will evaluate and vote on the recipient.
