Post-Master’s Option

Nurses who have completed a Women’s Health Care NP (WHCNP), or who are NPs in another specialty, are eligible to apply for the Post Master’s in Nurse-Midwifery.

Once an application is submitted, eligible candidates will be invited to interview with faculty, who will help to develop an individualized plan of study regarding what courses are necessary to meet both Penn’s and the American Midwifery Certification Board (AMCB) requirements. After this step is complete, candidates can complete the application process for admission.

Visit our Post Master’s Admissions page for application requirements and for information about our Gap Anaylsis policy and fees.
