ESHRE is proud to announce the introduction of a new certification for nurses and midwives. This unique programme provides an opportunity for nurses and midwives with special interest in reproductive health to validate their skills and experience and to establish their status.

Nurses active in human assisted reproduction have broad and increasing responsibilities in fertility clinics. The formal recognition of MAR nurses and midwives’ specialist knowledge and skills is now possible via the new ESHRE Certification. The programme defines competencies and requirements for professional practice and covers the different nursing roles within a fertility clinic. By establishing criteria of high professional standards, the certification programme will also increase the quality of healthcare provided by nurses and midwives in fertility units.
