Women’s Health Care Nurse Practitioner Program (WHCNP)
A Women’s Health Care Nurse Practitioner (WHCNP) is an advanced practice nurse who provides women with continuing and comprehensive health care throughout their lives. WHCNPs provide well-woman care, reproductive and gynecological care, and prenatal and postpartum care with a focus on health promotion, disease prevention, health education, and helping patients make smart lifestyle choices.
