OBGYN nurse jobs specialize in care related to the female reproductive system. Although these nurses usually work with pregnant women and newborns, they also deal with other aspects of reproductive health, which can include reproductive cancers, hormonal disorders, STIs and other gynecological issues.
Typical OBGYN nursing duties include patient assessment and providing direct patient care. OBGYN nurses will take vitals, obtain medical histories and conduct external examinations. More hands on duties can include preparing gynecological tests and pregnancy screenings, providing uterine massages, assisting in delivery and other obstetrics-related duties.
As with most nursing professions, educating the patient is a vital component of OBGYN nurse jobs. OBGYN nurses are experts in reproductive health and may educate patients on proper nutrition, exercise and medication for optimal reproductive health. They must be knowledgeable about the healthcare needs for all ages of women, including young women going through their first menstruation and women in post-menopausal stages.
To become an OBGYN nurse, candidates need to be an RN, and certain states and employers require additional certification. In this case, RNs should have a bachelor’s degree and two years of experience before they can become certified. They must also maintain the certification by taking CE courses or re-taking the exam every five years.
