What is an Enterostomal Therapist?

An Enterostomal Therapist is a Certified Wound, Ostomy, and Continence (CWOCN) professional, formally known as an (ET) nurse. This certification is obtained through the Wound, Ostomy, and Continence Nursing Society (WOCN). The certification examination must be retaken every five years.
