Nurse-Midwifery/Women’s Health Nurse Practitioner
Master of Science in Nursing Delivered Online
The Nurse-Midwifery/Women’s Health Nurse Practitioner program is designed to prepare the graduate to manage a woman’s normal obstetrical and gynecological needs during the childbearing years, to manage the care of the normal newborn, and to provide primary care to women throughout the lifespan.
Georgetown University School of Nursing & Health Studies established the Nurse-Midwifery program in 1972. The program now includes an innovative Women’s Health Nurse Practitioner program, which provides students with the opportunity to study women’s health and midwifery practice through a strong didactic program that includes advanced courses in pathophysiology, pharmacology, and health assessment. The program also includes a clinical sequence that allows students to experience a wide range of women’s health settings.
Bring new life into your career
The Nurse-Midwifery/Women’s Health Nurse Practitioner program is for nurses who wish to care for the health and well-being of women. This area of nursing continues to grow. Nurse Midwives often specialize in prenatal, delivery, and postpartum care for women, but many also provide care for women throughout their lifespan. Becoming a Nurse Midwife takes focus and dedication, but the rewards are immeasurable each time you touch the lives of expecting mothers and share the experience of welcoming their babies into the world.
Women’s Health Nurse Practitioners can become leaders in a variety of settings and situations, including opportunities to fulfill roles as primary care providers for their female patients.
The full-time Master’s in Nursing program consists of 49 credits broken into five 13-15 week modules and can be completed in 17-18 months.
The part-time sequence is also available for the working professional. The part-time program consists of 49 credits broken into seven 13-15 week modules and can be completed in about 2 1/2 years.
