This course was developed from her passion to bring advanced skills to her patients in primary care. This course is offered at an affordable rate to give all Nurse Practitioners the opportunity to learn the skill of pelvic floor assessment and IUD insertion.


About Pelvic Health and IUD Insertions

Having knowledge of pelvic floor assessment is a simple, yet important skill to have as a Primary Health Care Nurse Practitioner. Recognizing the need to complete pelvic assessments and providing up-to-date evidenced-based health teaching and recommendations can have a significant impact on a women's life.  Very few Nurse Practitioners have an opportunity to learn and apply the skills of IUD insertion during their time as a student in the NP Program.  This course provides Nurse Practitioners with an affordable, hands-on educational opportunity to learn all of the skills necessary to safely and independently insert IUDs in their practice.

  1. Describe the anatomy and physiology of the pelvic floor
