Average Annual AMCB Certification Rate for 2017-2019
Online Nurse-Midwifery/Women’s Health Nurse Practitioner Program (NM/WHNP) Overview
Through a blend of asynchronous didactic content, synchronous class sessions, and in-person Objective Clinical Intensives (OCIs), the online dual NM/WHNP program from Georgetown University School of Nursing & Health Studies (NHS) prepares advanced practice registered nurses to provide primary care to women across the life span, offer reproductive care during the childbearing years, and manage the care of newborns up to one month.
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).
