Doctor of Nursing Practice, Women's Health Nurse Practitioner (Blended)

When it comes to health care, women have unique needs and challenges. As a Women's Health Nurse Practitioner (NP) you can provide the specialized care they need throughout the lifespan. 

At Loyola Nursing, we offer a flexible, personalized experience to help you advance your career and become an expert in not only women's health, but gender and reproductive health. Graduates of Loyola's Women's Heath NP track are known for their compassionate, ethical care. During your graduate education as a Women's Health NP, you will be exposed to all areas of women's health, from private practice to community health to specialty clinics. As a small program, we offer you the individualized resources and support to ensure you are ready for a career as a nurse practitioner.

The Women's Health NP track is a hybrid learning format with both online and in-person instruction. Many of our students are working professionals with families at home, so we offer convenient full- and part-time options to fit your schedule.
