Celebrate the Year of the Nurse and Midwife by supporting our next generation of WHNPs. 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.

As a result of the ongoing COVID-19 situation, and for the health and safety of our members, we have decided to postpone the Women’s Sexual Health Course for NPs, scheduled to be held June 11-14. Due to the hands-on nature of the course and Vulvoscopy Workshop, we feel an in-person meeting is preferable over virtual options and are therefore working with the hotel to find a new date when we can safely gather. We will post more information as soon as it becomes available. We remain dedicated to providing NPs with continuing education in this critical area of women’s health.

NPWH is pleased to announce a new feature highlighting our members. If you would like to nominate a member or yourself to be highlighted, please email Julia Knox at jknox@npwh.org.
