Play an Integral Role in Improving Patient Care
The Women's Health Nurse Practitioner (NP) specialty is ideal for students interested in providing primary reproductive health and/or specialty care to female patients ranging from young adults to seniors. Graduates are also prepared to provide sexual and reproductive care to men, and others across the non-binary gender identity continuum.
With a collaborative model for delivering holistic care, this track places special emphasis on gender-focused health assessment and health conditions that are unique to women, with consideration of factors including social determinants of health and other external influences that affect health, such as public policy.
Our students come from a variety of backgrounds. Prior to entering the program, many work in settings serving women, such as domestic violence shelters, research settings or family planning clinics. Some have no clinical experience but majored in women's health or gender studies in college.
