About the IAUN

The Irish Association of Urology Nurses was founded in April, 2002 by nurses committed to developing an organisation for those who have a special interest in Urology. We are a non-profit association which acts as a representative body for qualified nurses and allied health care workers. To view a copy of our Constitution click here.

Our Aims

  • To act as a representative body for nurses working in or who have an interest in urology
  • To promote high standards in the practice and development of urological nursing 

Our vision for the future.

We recognise the need for a more holistic approach to the care of Urology patients providing an expert advisory service with the assessment, planning, implementation and evaluation of all treatment plans as appropriate. We would like to engage all members of the association to make this vision a reality. We aim to provide ongoing education and support through dissemination of current information and developments through this website and working  in collaboration  with relevant organisations many of which are listed in the links section. IAUN President Helen Forristal
