A Women’s Health Nurse Practitioner (WHNP) is a registered nurse who has completed advanced education and clinical training to provide holistic, comprehensive healthcare for women across their lifespan. The WHNP’s scope of practice includes health promotion, evaluation, diagnosis, and management of common and some complex medical conditions. Women’s Health Nurse Practitioners provide a broad range of healthcare services. Depending on one’s State Nurse Practice Act, WHNPs may practice autonomously. Individuals drawn to this specialty seek to understand the unique needs of women and to transform the client-provider relationship into one that empowers women to make informed decisions about their own health and healthcare.
Nurse Practitioners are in high demand, especially in underserved areas according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. WHNP’s provide high-quality, comprehensive care that involves collaboration with clients, their families, and other healthcare professionals. Women’s Health Nurse Practitioners provide services in a wide variety of clinical settings including but not limited to hospitals, private practices, government organizations, community health organizations, and hospices.
