Intrapartum Sterile Speculum Examination for Registered Nurses
Receive Free Nursing CEUs
The American College of Nurse-Midwives presents a free continuing education credit program designed to teach intrapartum nurses the basic skills needed to perform a sterile speculum examination. These skills can be used when gathering vaginal samples which have been ordered to help make a clinical diagnosis. The samples are used to rule out ruptured membranes, evaluate for fetal fibronectin and/or obtain specimens for vaginal cultures. Funding for development of this program was provided by the A.C.N.M. Foundation, Inc. through an unrestricted educational grant from Hologic.
