The National Association of Nurse Practitioners in Women’s Health’s Guidelines for Practice and Education outline a large list of WHNP competencies across several important categories:

  • Client-centered care
  • Primary care
  • Women’s gynecologic, sexual, reproductive, menopause-transition, and post-menopause healthcare
  • Male sexual and reproductive healthcare
  • Obstetric care
  • Professional role

Yes, an FNP is educated and trained to work with all types of patients across the lifespan, so they can potentially provide women’s health care. 

However, an FNP curriculum includes topics in adult, geriatric, and pediatric care which may not be as relevant for those focused on women’s health only. The FNP curriculum includes women’s health, but our WHNP curriculum greatly expands on this to provide greater preparation for success both on the WHNP certification exam and success in your first WHNP job.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, nurse practitioners earn an average salary of $128,490 per year ($61.78 per hour). Pay depends on many factors, including your location, what healthcare institution you work for and your level of experience.*

Discover the average nurse practitioner salary by state and find out what nurse practitioners make on average near you. Salaries can vary between specialties, and the BLS does not provide a specific estimate for WHNP.

Our online division is based out of our home office in downtown Milwaukee, Wisconsin: 275 W Wisconsin Ave Ste. 210, Milwaukee, WI 53203. Career-focused online degree programs are available for students across the US, pending any program-specific state eligibility requirements.

The goal is to fully prepare you for success in your work as a WHNP. Clinicals are completed as part of specialty WHNP courses to best establish concepts learned in didactic courses and immediately apply your learning to real-life direct patient care in a precepted clinical site.

Every student in the WHNP program is subject to a clinical proficiency exam after completing Advanced Health Assessment, Advanced Pathophysiology, and Advanced Pharmacology. This ensures a strong foundational knowledge prior to entering the specialty clinical courses towards a WHNP.

There are benchmarks and assessments throughout the program to help ensure you’re on the right track. We work closely with every student to help them fully prepare for success as a WHNP. You are afforded the opportunity to learn and work with other women's health providers to gain real life knowledge and experience to prepare you as you enter your own practice.

Precise scope of practice can vary by state and employer. The American Associate of Nurse Practitioners (AANP) provides a brief summary of the scope of practice common to all nurse practitioners.

You may have some initial questions about what a WHNP can and can’t do. For instance, can WHNP…

  • Write prescriptions? Yes, nurse practitioners may write prescriptions.
  • See male patients? Yes, some WHNPs may treat men. WHNPs are educationally prepared to care for individuals inclusive of sex, gender, or sexual orientation.
  • Deliver babies? No, only midwives or obstetricians (Obstetrics and Gynecology - OBGYN) can deliver babies.
  • Prenatal care? Yes, WHNP can provide pregnancy testing, fertility evaluation, prenatal visits, and postpartum care. 
  • Be called an “OBGYN” nurse practitioner? Some WHNP may be informally regarded as an OBGYN NP if their care focuses primarily on the pregnancy, childbirth, and postpartum period. However, no WHNP has the same scope of practice as an OBGYN physician (or nurse midwife).
  • Do mammograms? No. WHNP can order mammograms but they do not perform the actual exams.

You’ll learn more specifics over the course of the WHNP program.

Both business and data analysts usually work between a business team and a technology team, though their precise roles between those teams are unique. In some roles you may be asked to wear both hats, while larger organizations may have a more fleshed out structure in how they organize business vs. data analysts.

A data analyst may prepare the specifications and requirements for a project while business analysts actually execute the details of the project. Business analyst responsibilities commonly include directly interfacing with stakeholders, while data analysts may report primarily to a business analyst or project manager.

Generally speaking, data analysts spend a greater percentage of their time engaged in technical tasks while business analysts focus their energy on the bigger picture with an emphasis on people management rather than technical proficiency.

Business analytics can be a great career choice for analytically minded business professionals who may prefer leading meetings and communicating data insights as opposed to coding/programming or regularly working deeply with spreadsheets or databases.
