The Senior Infertility Nurse Group

Together we can make a difference

Welcome, the Senior Infertility Nurse Group – or SING – was founded in 2005 and currently represents over fifty fertility units throughout the UK and EIRE.

We provide peer support, guidance and encouragement to our members, promoting education and training for all fertility nurses and healthcare assistants.

We are a recognised stakeholder group, proactively involved in shaping the future of fertility treatment and innovation and are affiliated with national and international fertility societies.

Senior Infertility Nurses Group

The SING website offers training and education opportunities and information for any fertility healthcare professional. We have updated our specialist fertility training modules and added in some new features to promote education, training and best practices for all nurses working and caring for individuals seeking fertility treatment.

Fertility Nursing – Continuing Professional Development

We all recognise the importance of continuing professional development to ensure the best possible patient care and career progression for nurses. The SING website is the place for all your fertility related training courses, networking opportunities and specialist information about treating infertility.

We have developed a series of training courses to help ensure that our members are able to provide the best care and support for individuals seeking fertility treatment. These modules have been developed by members of the Senior Infertility Nurses Group and edited by the website team.  To access them you can register for free.
