It’s no surprise, then, that RMANJ has been recognized as a Center of Nursing Excellence by The Executive Board of the Nurses’ Professional Group – American Society of Reproductive Medicine (ASRM).
Adrienne Frankel is a Primary Senior Nurse at Reproductive Medicine Associates of New Jersey’s Basking Ridge office. When she isn’t supporting the nursing staff, she loves traveling, spending time with family and especially floating in her pool while reading a book.

“I love that patients end up feeling like family, and being able to tell them they’re pregnant is the best feeling,” she said.
