ABOUT THE ORGANIZATION
26 Mile Run/Walk Supporting Women's Health Research and Scholarship.
NPWH is the trusted champion and essential professional resource for Women's Health Nurse Practitioners and all advanced practice registered nurses who provide women's and gender-related healthcare. We value collaboration and build strong alliances with like-minded organizations and providers. The providers we serve are known experts in the primary, complex and specialty care of their patients, and are leaders and advocates in the advancement of healthcare towards a more just, healthy, and equitable world.
NPWH is committed to increasing inclusivity, diversity, and equity in our organization, the WHNP profession, the women's and gender-related healthcare field, and beyond.
Our Membership is composed of professionals representing diversity by, but not limited to, specialty area, educational background, race and ethnicity, age, geographic location, socioeconomic status, ability, gender and identity, sexual orientation, and personal beliefs. We actively seek to engage and amplify the voices that have historically been silenced, and ensure they are represented in our staff, leadership, and programming.
Our profession recognizes the need to grow in diversity and dismantle racism, discrimination, and other barriers to education and career paths for professionals from underrepresented and marginalized groups. We work together with others to expand opportunities and promote diversity within the WHNP professional community.
Our field understands the health disparities and injustice created by implicit bias, social determinants, and systemic racism. Through self and organizational assessment, education, professional development, and advocacy, we work to counter these forces and work for equity in all aspects of women's and gender related healthcare.
NPWH is the professional community for Women's Health Nurse Practitioners and other advanced practice registered nurses who provide women's and gender-related healthcare. We set a standard of excellence by generating, translating, and promoting the latest research and evidence based clinical guidance, providing high-quality continuing education, and advocating for patients, providers, and the WHNP profession. Our mission includes protecting and promoting a woman and all individuals' rights to make their own choices regarding their health and well-being within the context of their lived experience and their personal, religious, cultural, and family beliefs.
