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


Students develop the specialized skills and experience to treat and prevent illnesses unique to women as well as provide focused care in areas such as:

  • Primary care
  • Prenatal and postpartum care
  • Life span care through menopause
  • General wellness and preventive care
  • Reproductive health care

Graduates are eligible to sit for board certification through the National Certification Corporation (NCC). After certification, they may provide woman-focused care in a range of settings, such as physician’s offices, primary care clinics, hospitals, emergency care clinics, and nursing homes.

The Program
