RMANJ’s Marlton practice has a new nurse practitioner: meet Hayley Eichlin
She’s back. Hayley Eichlin, who spent two years working as a nurse practitioner at RMANJ’s Basking Ridge office in 2015, has returned to RMANJ.
But this time, she’s landed in Marlton, where she’ll be working with lead doctors Daniel Kaser and Jason Franasiak at an exciting time: the expansion of the clinic to include a world class embryology lab with state of the art technology.
Eichlin started working at the Marlton office this week, and, in addition to doing morning monitoring, performing ultrasounds, saline sonograms, hysterosalpingograms (HSG), IUIs, and meeting with new patients, she will also be one of a small number of nurse practitioners in the area performing flexible hysteroscopies when the new clinic opens.
“I’m just really looking forward to returning to RMANJ,” said Eichlin earlier this month. “I’m thrilled to start providing patient-centered care to the South Jersey community.”
“It’s a big honor to work with Dr. Kaser and Dr. Franasiak and to build this practice – it’s challenging and innovative and exciting.”
With that type of enthusiasm, it’s no wonder Eichlin is back at RMANJ.
Eichlin began her nursing career in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. She loved the work, but wanted to get certified as a nurse practitioner and experience outpatient care, so she decided to pursue a Master of Science in Nursing from Philadelphia’s Thomas Jefferson University.
Shortly before graduation, in 2015, she came to RMANJ for her clinical rotation. It was such a good fit that she stayed for two years, leaving in 2017 to get a taste of obstetrics and gynecology at a St. Luke’s University Health Network clinic in Wind Gap, Pa. During that time, she also graduated from North Carolina’s Duke University, where she submitted a manuscript on music therapy during the HSG procedure – a project she’d done at RMANJ – and earned a Doctorate in Nursing Practice.
Now, with the doctorate under her belt and the OBGYN experience she’d been craving to round out her women’s health clinical experience, she was ready to come back to RMANJ.
“I left because I wanted to get that general OBGYN experience, and it was great and I learned a ton,” Eichlin said, “but I could not pass up the job in Marlton.”
“I’m really looking forward to returning and helping people have babies!”
