At Rutgers School of Nursing, we prepare you for a full scope of practice at the highest level. As a women’s health nurse practitioner, you will provide primary and reproductive care to women across the lifespan. As a certified nurse midwife, you will provide holistic health care throughout the labor and birth process and in the postpartum period to essentially healthy women and their newborns.

Student testimonial

I chose Rutgers because it offers a dual program in both midwifery and women’s health. While it’s a tough program, it’s very easy to feel comfortable here and feel like you’re part of a family.

Our dual program emphasizes a wellness paradigm and implements a scientific, evidence-based rationale for practice within diverse practice and health care delivery settings.
