Training in Abortion Care (TAC) Residency

In a time when abortion care is becoming increasingly less accessible, and attacks on the legal right to healthcare are seemingly never-ending, NSRH is doubling down on our commitment to creating a world where all people have access to comprehensive sexual and reproductive health (SRH). NSRH has created the Training in Abortion Care (TAC) Residency as part of this commitment. The TAC residency aims to address the need for more full-spectrum clinical training opportunities for registered nurses.

TAC’s first cohort will be established in honor of Helen Pearl Lay Watson, a registered nurse and pro-choice supporter who practiced for 54 years mainly in the states of Kentucky and Tennessee. Helen’s granddaughters, Julie Watson and Katie Watson, are honoring her legacy by supporting the development of the TAC residency. For this first TAC cycle, only RNs licensed to practice in the states of Kentucky and/or Tennessee are eligible.
