Nadine Broersen (born 29 April 1990) is a Dutch track and field athlete.

Broersen competed at the 2012 Summer Olympics in the women's heptathlon event, where she finished 13th with a personal best score of 6319 points.[1] At the 2013 World Championships in Athletics she competed in the women's heptathlon as well, but started very bad by falling over the last hurdle in the 100 m hurdles. In the later disciplines however, she continued very strong and finished 10th.[2]

On March 7, 2014, she won gold at the World Indoor championships in Sopot in the indoor pentathlon, improving the national record of Karin Ruckstuhl with a score of 4830 points. On the way to that result she also improved the national indoor record in the high jump, with a height of 1.93 m.
