urogynecology nursing?

  1. I am interested in urogynecology nursing--particularly related to pelvic floor therapy, continence, and pelvic floor dysfunction as it relates to incontinence. Any RN's in this field willing to share how they got started?

    I would think that it would be difficult to find a nursing job specific to the uro-gynecological field, but it probably just depends on where you are. I just started working in a Urology office and we do a lot of urodynamics testing and incontinence consultations for surgery and occasionally if the patient needs a surgery done involving both a gynecologist and a urologist, that surgery can be coordinated together, but it's not too common. I would say you should try to find a job within either Urology or Gynecology and then find out what you need to do to get to where you want to be. Good luck!

    Hi Bassgirl,

    I am very interested how your issue was solved?
    I too am debating about this and any info will be of great assistance.

    Thank you,
