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.
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.
We meet regularly to discuss issues and trends in fertility nursing, and invite guest speakers to present on important topics.
We also arrange local social meetings and promote external training events relevant to the SING members.
