Meet July's Fertility Nurse of the Month

As with many things in life, it takes a village to provide the best fertility treatment experience possible. And the fertility nurse is one of the most important guides in that village, providing patients with education, answering questions, and often lending a supportive ear — and even a shoulder to cry on.

FertilityAuthority recognizes those special nurses that have made a difference in patients' lives. July's Fertility Nurse of the Month is Traci Shahan in Englewood, Colorado. Shahan — an RN, CNS, WHNP-BC and Doctor of Nursing —is a nurse practitioner with Albrecht Women's Care Denver IVF who combines her extensive knowledge and education with a genuine compassion and advocacy for women during an extremely difficult time.

“There’s the scientific part of me that loves the challenge of helping and diagnosing women with more nuanced problems," she told FertilityAuthority. "What’s more interesting and compelling to me is holding their hand and helping them when it looks like there is no hope to be had. That is when I feel most at one with the world."

If you have a fertility nurse whom you counted on for support and education through your fertility treatment process, please nominate him or her for Fertility Nurse of the Month by clicking here. We will contact you if your nurse is chosen to be our Fertility Nurse of the Month.
