A high-intensity Postgraduate Certificate that prepares the nursing professional in all tasks related to the work in The Operating Room and the Assisted Reproduction Laboratory for Nursing"

This Postgraduate Certificate will review the areas of the surgical field and the necessary clothing in the operating room, focusing the study on the most important fields of work of nursing staff in the assisted reproduction unit. You will learn about follicular puncture, how oocyte extraction is performed and which are the most commonly used techniques. It will be explained how the nursing staff intervenes in the intraoperative and postoperative period of follicular puncture, what specific activities are performed and what are the recommended discharge instructions. 

In addition, it will be developed how embryo transfer is performed and what are the nursing activities performed during this process. We will study in depth the methods that exist to obtain spermatozoa in patients with azoospermia and which are the most commonly used. 

Finally, the techniques used in the operating room and types of treatment such as laparoscopy and hysteroscopy will be studied. The second part of the module will explain what an AR laboratory is like, its design and environmental conditions, discovering what treatments are performed in the different areas of the laboratory, and the equipment used on a daily basis. AR laboratories have to pass a series of quality controls, which require maximum cleanliness and hygiene, in order to ensure optimal conditions and achieve good results with patients. 

And of course you will learn that in an AR clinic it has to be a teamwork between several disciplines, medicine, nursing and embryology, where communication and companionship are the priority.

With this Postgraduate Certificate you will be able to balance a high-intensity educational program with your professional and personal life, achieving your goals in a simple and real way"
