Lynn George, dean of Carlow's College of Health and Wellness, says a women's health nurse practitioner program is a good fit for the university's mission "philosophically, as well as with talents we have." "Employer satisfaction surveys among regional employers of our nurse practitioner graduates indicate they're extremely satisfied with our graduates," George says. "Women have unique health care needs, just like men have unique health care needs, but there's plenty of evidence that women's health care needs are not being met at the levels we'd expect in the United States . . . We spend more on health care than any other country but our [disease and death] outcomes are not where we need them to be." About six percent of nurse practitioners nationally focus on women's health, George says, and many of them serve patients in underserved rural or urban settings. Carlow's students have clinical practice sites at Pittsburgh Mercy Health System, Allegheny Health Network, Magee, and the VA Butler hospital. "Nursing is a practice discipline, so they need to be practicing as they're learning," she says. Leaders from both AHN and UPMC confirmed for Carlow that there is a critical need for women's health nurse practitioners to fill roles at their hospitals, George says.
