The invaluable role our nurses play in helping patients become parents is now formally recognized by the American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM) through its distinction of Shady Grove Fertility as a Nursing Center of Excellence. Whether it is guiding our patients through their treatment plans, explaining protocols, or supporting our patients through the process, our nurses are dedicated to providing our patients with the highest standard of care.
For a practice to be considered a Nursing Center of Excellence, half of their full-time nursing staff must complete the ASRM’s certificate course indicating their expertise in reproductive endocrinology and infertility (REI) nursing. Completing the course is no small feat, as it involves covering the scope of 16 modules of REI nursing. After a full day of work, many of our nurses went home to study multiple evenings or formed weekly study groups to review the materials prior to completing their certificate testing. And for a practice our size, the largest in the nation with over 125 nurses on staff, we are the largest practice to date to have earned this distinction.
Read what some of our patients have to say about our incredible nurses:
“The staff and nurses are amazing. They always welcomed me with open arms, a friendly smile, and encouraging words. They are there with you on this journey and riding it out until the end.”
“The nurses were positive and always willing to answer a question or offer an encouraging word or smile. We couldn’t have asked for a better experience.”
“The nurses and doctors were with me every step of the way. I cried and laughed with them on many occasions, and they always made me feel so comfortable. They never gave me false hope and provided the most honest answers and information.”
We are so thankful for our remarkable nurses who constantly challenge themselves and exceed expectations in order for Shady Grove Fertility to receive this prestigious designation. The American Society for Reproductive Medicine, as well as Shady Grove Fertility, deem patient satisfaction as a top priority that nurses help play such a critical role in achieving. Our nurses’ commitment to advance their practice and provide the utmost service to our patients is just one of the many reasons why 96% of patients would recommend Shady Grove Fertility to a friend/family member to start or grow their family.
