Job Market for WHNPs


Has 4 years experience.

I am interviewing for a OB position as I wish to focus on Women's Health for my NP. Just curious if anyone knows what the job market is like for this type of NP?

cayenne06, MSN, CNM

Specializes in Reproductive & Public Health. Has 10 years experience.

Why WHNP instead of CNM? What do you want to do in women's health?

It depends on where you live. There are areas where there are jobs like Texas, but there are other areas like where I live in Arkansas where they are shutting down WHNP programs because there are no jobs. Most people around here are saying that it is smarter to get your FNP and then once you graduate try to get a job in women's health because there are more options available to you with a FNP.
