DNP - Women's Health Nurse Practitioner
The Women’s Health Nurse Practitioner DNP Program prepares nurses to be practice leaders at the highest level in the application and translation of evidence based research to improve systems in healthcare for women. Graduates are eligible for certification in the State of New Jersey as advanced practice nurses with prescriptive authority. The program is designed for either part-time or full-time study.
Rutgers School of Nursing prepares women’s health practitioners to provide primary and reproductive care to women across the lifespan from adolescence to senescence in diverse practice and health care delivery settings. The advance practice nurse emphasizes a wellness paradigm and implements a scientific, evidence-based rationale for practice.
All of the in-person classes are held at the Newark campus only.
