The Women's Health Nurse Practitioner track at Regis College specializes in the assessment and treatment of women's health, including gynecology, reproduction, and primary care. Students learn how to manage the health needs of women from adolescence to geriatrics and have the opportunity to advance in the areas of pharmacology, pathophysiology, and health assessment through nursing theory, process and research.

The curriculum meets the National Certification Corporation (NCC) Criteria for certification as a Women's Health Nurse Practitioner.
