Through a hybrid blend of asynchronous didactic content, synchronous class sessions, and in-person on-campus intensives (OCIs), the online dual Nurse Midwifery - Women's Health Nurse Practitioner program from Georgetown University prepares advanced practice registered nurses to provide primary care to women across the life span.


The Program

As an online nurse-midwifery program, the dual curriculum includes courses in reproductive health care, labor and birth, and integrated midwifery care. As a women’s health nurse practitioner program, the coursework further explores the primary, ambulatory, and advanced care of women.

Having completed a Master of Science degree in Nursing (MS in Nursing), graduates are eligible to sit for the American Midwifery Certification Board (AMCB) exam and the National Credentialing Corporation (NCC) becoming certified as both nurse-midwives (CNMs) and women’s health nurse practitioners (WHNPs).

The dual Nurse Midwifery - Women's Health Nurse Practitioner program from Georgetown University draws upon the Jesuit value of cura personalis, or care for the whole person. As graduates of a dual WHNP and nurse-midwifery program, students learn to recognize and address the physical, mental, and spiritual needs of the women and newborns in their care.
