More than 5-7 million children in the United States live with nocturnal enuresis (NE), resulting in a blow to their self-esteem. They forgo age-appropriate activities, such as overnight camps or sleep overs, and can become increasingly frustrated. They may even receive punishment from their parents for wetting the bed. There are four types of nocturnal enuresis. Each type of nocturnal enuresis is unique in its characteristics and in the way the provider should approach treatment. Thankfully, there are many treatments that include both non-pharmacologic and pharmacologic options. It is important to educate patients and families about the causes, diagnosis, and treatment plan. This will improve outcomes and produce a faster resolution to nocturnal enuresis. This continuing education program will update healthcare professionals’ knowledge of the etiology, identification, treatment, and necessary patient education of nocturnal enuresis.


The goal of this nocturnal enuresis continuing education program is to update healthcare professionals’ knowledge of the etiology, identification, and treatment of nocturnal enuresis (NE). After studying the information presented here, you will be able to:
  • Identify the prevalence of NE in school-age children.
  • List common etiologies of NE.
  • Name one pharmacologic and one nonpharmacologic treatment of enuresis.
