Abstract

Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART) nurses play a pivotal role balancing many aspects of the treatment cycle as they endeavour to optimise outcomes for both patients and ART units. The purpose of this study was firstly to gain an understanding of the ART nursing role within Australia and secondly to develop a theory to explain the role. There is limited research that clarifies the unique nature of the ART nurse role within Australia and internationally, therefore outcomes of this research have the potential to be applicable to the global ART nursing community of practice.
