The Society of Urologic Nurses and Associates (SUNA) is accredited as a provider of continuing nursing education by the American Nurses’ Credentialing Center’s Commission on Accreditation.
The SUNA accreditation is reciprocal in the states and specialty organizations that recognize the ANCC-COA accreditation process. SUNA is also a provider approved by the California Board of Registered Nursing, Provider Number CEP 5556.
Accreditation and approved provider status of CE in nursing does not imply ANCC-COA approval or endorsement of any product, advertising, or educational content. SUNA urges all participants to be aware of the CE requirements for re-licensure in the states in which they hold a license.
After completing this activity, the learner will be able to identify health history questions that can prompt a conversation about sexual health for women with pelvic floor dysfunction and describe strategies to initiate treatment for women with sexual dysfunction.
