Welcome Members !

The Blue Ridge Affiliate is an informal group of nurses and other providers whose scope of practice includes wound, ostomy and continence care. Our territory includes Charlottesville, the surrounding counties and Western Central Virginia. Our group includes nurses who work in acute care, long-term acute care, skilled nursing facilities, nursing homes, home health care agencies and out-patient wound clinics, as well as community members working with long-term care facilities and students of wound, ostomy, and continence care programs

Dates / Locations for Meetings

We meet on the first Thursday of the month every 2-3 months, from 6:30 – 8:30 pm at a restaurant in the Charlottesville area. Meetings have an industry sponsor and include an educational program, a short business meeting, and time to network, share ideas, and socialize with other professionals in our field.

All nurses and other healthcare providers working in the field are welcome to attend our meetings, regardless of WOCN® membership status and/or level of certification.
