Stoma therpy nurses

A Stomal Therapy Nurse (STN) is a Registered Nurse who has undertaken special studies in stomal therapy nursing.

STN Services are also provided by many public and private hospitals, and some health services offer home visits. Please note:

• not all private health insurers cover home visits by STNs – please contact your insurance fund to confirm rebate amounts

• ostomates should have their stoma checked regularly to ensure good health – ideally every second year.

Please note: Registered Nurses at the following institutions are currently completing their studies in Stomal Therapy Nursing and therefore provide a support service only.
