Nursing Study Day

Overview & Introduction

Jane Denton and Yvonne Wedden, Module Leads

This study day will take place as live virtual event on 22 June from 10:00 – 13:30.
It will also be available as a recorded module until 30 December 2022 however registrants are encouraged to attend the live virtual event, and to take part in the discussion sessions.
The study day is designed to help fertility nurses review their personal career pathway and contribute to their re-validation and the development of knowledge and expertise.

Fertility nurses at every level of practice will benefit from the day. Nurses with a longer career in fertility will be most welcome as it is an important opportunity to share experiences with newer fertility nurses and colleagues and shape the future of this specialist area of practice.

Based on the RCN Education & Career Progression Framework for Fertility Nursing, the programme includes progressing from novice to expert, nurse led research, fertility in the context of women’s health and a discussion on the future challenges for fertility nursing.
