Nurse Heroes

The American Nurses Association (ANA), Al Roker Entertainment, and HealthCom Media, publisher of Women’s Healthcare, a Clinical Journal for NPs, have joined forces to produce a multi-channel campaign to celebrate the heroic work of nurses and the positive impact they have on our nation in this time of crisis—and beyond. 

The National Association of Nurse Practitioners in Women’s Health (NPWH) Student Leadership Program focuses on developing the next generation of WHNPs. WHNP Program Directors and faculty nominate students. The NPWH Student Leadership Subcommittee selects students based on the applicant’s leadership, creativity, and scholastic qualities.

To celebrate the launch of the Year of the Nurse and the Midwife, Women’s Healthcare launched its My Nurse Influencer program to feature some of the greatest online nurse influencers! These influencers bring a fresh perspective to our journal and offer our readers more diverse topic matter. We are also thrilled to offer these influencers a platform to share their voices. Editor’s Note –The views expressed in the nurse influencer posts are those of the contributing authors. NPWH does not sanction the content of these posts.
