Fertility nursing in the coronavirus pandemic
In my 35 years as a fertility nurse, I can honestly say that working during the COVID-19 pandemic has been the most challenging few months of my career. I started nursing because I loved being around people and helping them, but the closure of fertility clinics in response to the crisis has forced me to stay home, away from the people that need me. I need to be with my patients and my staff and look after them in the way I have been trained to. I work in a patient-facing industry and not being able to connect with them is heart-breaking.
