The National Association of Nurse Practitioners in Women’s Health (NPWH) position statement on the Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) for women’s health nurse practitioners (WHNPs) was approved by the Board of Directors June, 2016. NPWH supports a pragmatic approach for the continuing evolution to the DNP as entry level for WHNPs. During the transition, study of the impact of DNP education on quality, access, and cost of healthcare should be ongoing. NPWH will continue to advocate at organizational and legislative levels to ensure that policies and regulations support the practice of all WHNPs.
