The 2015 Fall Educational Scholarship was presented to Alyssa Clarke of Bettendorf, Iowa. Alyssa has been a Certified Wound Ostomy Nurse for 3 years, and now has successfully completed Foot and Nail care education through the WebWOC Nursing Education Program in the spring of 2015 and passed her certification exam this summer.
Her letter of recommendation came from a fellow colleague who states, “What makes Alyssa a great WOC nurse? By far, it is compassion to her patients. She is positive, caring and extremely kind. She listens to her patients and gives them the guidance and confidence that they need. Alyssa is loved by everyone and is very deserving of this WOCN scholarship award”.
The Iowa Affiliate of the WOCN and her surrounding community are very fortunate to have a Certified Foot Care Nurse in Alyssa Clarke. Congratulations to Alyssa!
The 2015 Spring Educational Scholarship was present to Lynette Sievers of Washington, Iowa during the April business meeting. Lynette successfully completed the Full-Scope WebWOC Nursing Education Program in November 2014 and attained certification in December 2014. Her letter of recommendation came from her supervisor who states, “Lynette leads by example. She does not hesitate to step in and take advantage of the teachable moment. Lynette has the innate ability to help people feel comfortable in their own skin. She is able to exceed expectations for outcomes. Lynette puts her heart and soul into her work. Her philosophy seems to be, learning never stops, it just gets more interesting!” The Iowa Affiliate of the WOCN is very fortunate to have yet another WOC certified member in Annette Sievers. Congratulations to Annette!
Nicole Cable of Des Moines, Iowa
Graduated from the WebWOC completing all 3 tracks.
I had a rotation in wound care when I was in nursing school and have for many years said that when I was ready to move on, WOC nursing would be the next path. The time has come, and I am very excited to be moving into this dynamic ﬁeld. I bring with me years of experience in patient education and advocacy, diverse care settings, and staff education that will help round out my WOC NEP experiences.
Jodie Atkinson of Clinton, Iowa
Completion of “Management of Standard and Continent Diversions” on February 13th, 2013 from Woodruff Medical Center, Emory University.

She states, “I feel having a sole ostomy nurse that patients can rely on from pre-op education through their hospitalization, recovery and out into home care post discharge will only enhance their patient care experience…”
