A Day in the Life of an Abortion Nurse

It’s Thursday. I’ve been assigned to OR 3 with one of my favorite scrub techs. It will be a tough day and I’m relieved to have her.

Thursday in my OR is the day our OB/GYN service has block time to schedule D&Es. To the non-medical personnel out there — abortions. Room 3 is their room. I’m their circulating nurse for the duration.




This is a space to empower differences, tell our stories, and share our lives together. We will not be silenced. We will be fearless. And we will write.
