The National Association of Nurse Practitioners in Women's Health (NPWH) is pleased to announce the return of our Student Leadership Program. The purpose of the Leadership Program is to build a community of women's health nurse practitioner students nationally and to provide those students the opportunity to connect with and learn from expert women's health nurse practitioners and advanced practice providers at our annual national conference, held this year October 16-19 in Savannah, Georgia. During the conference, Student Leaders will have the chance to be session moderators and/or runners and to interact with renowned clinicians and healthcare experts. Students will also have the opportunity to network with the NPWH Board of Directors and the hundreds of clinicians who attend our annual conference. All student leaders will also receive free conference registration. For a full list of requirements and benefits, click here.
If you are a member of NPWH and currently enrolled in an WHNP program we encourage you to apply for this opportunity! To apply, submit an application form, faculty recommendation form, resume, and copy of your student ID to email@example.com by July 15, 2019. We will notify all applicants via email by August 1, 2019.
NPWH is alarmed that lawmakers are working to pass new laws banning and restricting abortion access — imposing professional, civil, and criminal penalties on clinicians who provide safe, high-quality abortion care to their patients. We are also troubled and paying close attention to new discussions and political debates regarding contraception and the autonomy of women's bodies.
As these disturbing events continue to unfold, NPWH re-asserts our mission statement, which values “protecting and promoting a woman’s right to make her own choices regarding her health within the context of her personal, religious, cultural, and family beliefs.”
Nurse practitioners understand that it is crucial to have the ability to provide women with compassionate, individualized healthcare built on sound science and evidence-based practice. We are committed to offering safe choices and equal access to all women.
Fran Way has devoted her nursing career to the advancement of the Women's Health Nurse Practitioner (WHNP) role. For that reason, NPWH has implemented the Fran Way Legacy Award. Each year, NPWH will actively seek nominations for this award that will be bestowed to a WHNP who has demonstrated commitment to women's health through practice, education and advocacy. To nominate yourself or another WHNP, please send a nomination statement, a minimum of two support letters, and the CV of the nominee to firstname.lastname@example.org by July 15, 2019.
