IVF Nurses Are Special

It’s National Nurse Appreciation Week.

There was a time when the word “nurse” would conjure up a vision of a bedpan-toting woman in a funny white hat. Nowadays (gee am I dating myself with this lingo?) nurses are gals… and guys… in fashionably-colored scrubs.

Not to de-value the bedpan-slinger (because there is certainly a time and place for that!), but no one can compare to a great IVF nurse. And I should know. I’ve had my share. Seven to be exact.

An IVF nurse is a key part of your team, and especially so if your partner comes up short in the emotional support department. She is always there with the answers you seek, the dosage you forgot, and the shoulder you need.

She’s got your back.

And depending which nurse you’ve been assigned, she may even have walked in your shoes. Several of Long Island IVF’s staff, including the nurses, were also patients. And many of the nurses have been working here for over ten… and sometimes over twenty… years!

Why not take a moment and give a shout out to your favorite IVF nurse(s) and share a memorable moment?

I’ll start. Thanks Joey, Sue, Maryann, Denise, Vicky, Patty, and Dotty. And I can’t forget the nurse practitioners: Lorraine, Olga, and Kathy. Or Gail. Too many memories to choose from… though Dotty and I (and any witnesses) will always remember our famous wheelchair ride story!
