Fertility Nurses play a crucial role in the running of an IVF unit. They are the first port of call for potential patients and oversee the day to day management of a patient as they navigate treatment. They provide patients with their treatment plan, hold their hand through the minefield of taking fertility medication and become the patient’s emotional rock.

In this section we have created modules of learning for fertility nurses to earn CPD points. The modules have been designed to cover all aspects of fertility nursing for concise career development. Our modules of learning cover the 5 key stages of your nursing career.
