Nurses for Sexual and Reproductive Health

Founded in 2009, Nurses for Sexual and Reproductive Health (NSRH) provides students, nurses and midwives with education and resources to become skilled care providers and social change agents in sexual and reproductive health and justice.

We envision a world in which all people have access to just and dignified full-spectrum reproductive and sexual health care.

Mission

NSRH is a collaborative, nationwide organization that works to promote women’s health and reproductive rights through advocacy, activism, provider education and training. NSRH welcomes any undergraduate, graduate, or doctoral level nursing student who is interested in ensuring that nurses are fully trained to meet the reproductive health care needs of women and their families.
