It felt like family towards the end. Our nurse knew what I was feeling, exactly what I needed to hear, and what type of help I needed.

Reproductive Medicine Associates of Pennsylvania (RMA of PA) announces it has been named a Nursing Center of Excellence by the Executive Board of Nurses’ Professional Group, an organization composed of nurse members of the American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM).
This honor signifies at least fifty percent of the practice’s Registered Nurses and/or Nurse Practitioners have completed additional training in reproductive endocrinology nursing through the ASRM eLearn™ REI Nursing Certificate Course.
At RMA of PA, nurses play a key role in patient education and satisfaction. Every patient is matched with either a Nurse Practitioner or Registered Nurse. After the initial visit with the physician, patients have the opportunity to speak with their assigned clinical team member. This process provides patients with a point of contact for questions and support.
Kristy, a patient whose story is highlighted on the RMA of PA’s website, was comforted by the nurse she was paired with during her treatments.
“They give you step-by-step,” said Kristy. “And they're just really nice people to work with. Our nurse, B.J., often kept in touch with me through email. We sent pictures of our daughter to B.J., and she in turn shared them with the office. It felt kind of like a family towards the end — B.J. knew what I was feeling, exactly what I needed to hear, and what type of help I needed. B.J. helped me through everything.”
RMAPA is a nationwide leader in successful in vitro fertilization procedures. According to a report released in March 2016 by the Society of Assisted Reproductive Technology (SART), RMAPA has a 72.5% success rate for InVitro Fertilization (IVF) embryo transfers resulting in a live birth, for women under 35. The national average for this age group is 47.4%.*
