Fertility Nurse jobs: frequently asked questions
Welcome to our Fertility Nurse jobs page, featuring all the latest Fertility Nurse roles throughout the UK, as well as frequently asked questions below.
What is a Fertility Nurse?
Fertility Nurses care for a variety of individuals and families who are seeking counselling or treatment options for reproductive health.
They’ll often work with women dealing with infertility, couples struggling to conceive or women going through the menopause.
It’s a niche nursing position but roles are becoming more abundant, especially in the private sector where many people are now seeking private fertility support.
What are the daily duties of a Fertility Nurse?
The duties of a Fertility Nurse can vary, but will likely include:
• Supporting clinicians and embryologists
• Injection teaching and educating patients
• Assisting with ultrasound scanning
• Supporting processes like egg collection
• Administering any relevant medication
• Monitoring and supporting patients
• Consulting with couples and individuals about fertility plans and treatments
What qualifications do you need to become a Fertility Nurse?
To become a Fertility Nurse you need to be registered with the Nursing & Midwifery Council (NMC) – for which you need a recognised nursing or midwifery degree. Relevant degrees are available in any of these five areas: midwifery, adult, child, mental health and learning disabilities nursing.
Courses generally last 3 years, unless you study part-time or choose to take an apprenticeship.
You then typically need at least two years’ experience working with females or in a field relevant to fertility. Midwives are inevitably very suitable candidates.
Many of the newest fertility nursing jobs are appearing within the private sector, so requirements and desired personality traits can vary from one job to the next.
How much do Fertility Nurses earn?
According to industry statistics, the average UK Fertility Nurse earns around £35,000 to £37,000 a year.
In the NHS, it could be considered a Band 5 or Band 6 Role, which would give you a starting salary of around £25,000 or £32,000 respectively.
However, with many roles now in the private sector – where pay is unregulated – pinpointing average pay rates is trickier.
Anecdotally, private Fertility Nurses tend to earn an above average salary.
