Izanne van Rijn

Izanne van Rijn

Fertility Nurse

After obtaining her nursing degree, Izanne found that choosing a specific discipline was rather difficult at first.

She had always had a desire to donate her eggs to a deserving recipient, and after meeting with a nurse from the agency that she registered with, decided to apply for a vacancy as a fertility nurse. 

Izanne feels that since then she learned a lot and is still learning every day. It excites her to have a new challenge daily, as she has a strong desire to become the most approachable, caring, dedicated fertility nurse. 

She believes that by combining science and characteristics such as empathy, compassion, and genuine care, she can make a positive contribution and difference in the fertility world.
