The role of Women’s Health Nurse Practitioner (WHNP) at HCHC is to provide high quality primary health care services to patients of the Health Center utilizing a team based model to support the Mission and Vision of HCHC.

The NP is board certified or board eligible licensed practitioner. The WHNP is a member of the clinical team at HCHC. The WHNP, unless otherwise noted, does not have formal supervisory authority over other Health Center staff. However, the WHNP is expected to contribute to the ongoing knowledge enhancement of other clinical staff in order to achieve the best possible clinical outcomes for Health Center patients.
