A Review of the 8th edition of Women’s Health Nurse Practitioner: Guidelines for Practice and Education

0

It is essential that all women’s health nurse practitioners (WHNPs) understand the scope and breadth of this informative, evidence-based document that sets the standards for WHNPs.   This updated 8th edition of the guidelines defines the role of the WHNP, identifies entry level-practice competencies and guides educators in the development of WHNP educational programs.  Additionally, these guidelines are used by a variety of stakeholders in women’s health, including employers, and regulatory and accreditation organizations.  

The following topics will be discussed during this activity:

  • Overview and brief history of guideline development (Beth Kelsey, EdD, APRN, WHNP-BC, FAANP, NPWH Director of Publications)
  • Applications to practice and scope of practice (Sue Kendig, JD, WHNP-BC, FAANP, NPWH Director of Policy)
  • Implications for academic programs (Aimee Chism Holland, DNP, WHNP-BC, FNP-C, FAANP, Assistant Dean for Graduate Clinical Education, University of Alabama at Birmingham)
  • How the guidelines inform the certification exam (Jacki Witt, JD, MSN, WHNP-BC, FAANP, NCC Board President)
