Abstract

Surrogacy is a growing option for families unable to successfully conceive or carry a baby to term for various reasons. Despite the growth in the use of surrogate mothers both in the U.S. and globally, very few nursing education programs provide adequate education on this topic. A literature review of 12 peer-reviewed sources published within the past 12 years was conducted. Clearly, there is a critical lack of content about care of surrogate mothers in nursing programs. Nursing education should continue to evolve alongside societal changes in order to provide holistic care to our growing and diverse population.
