The WHCC Education Program offers an array of continuing education
opportunities for advanced practice nursing education, under the supervision
and instruction of Anita Nelson, MD. Courses include: the Contraceptive
Update, Office Gynecology Update, the Basic Colposcopy Program, and the NCC
review online course.
The Women¹s Health Care Nurse Practitioner Program is approved by the
California Board of Registered Nursing as a Continuing Education Provider
In 1966 the WHCC started as a Pap Clinic, designed to teach registered
nurses how to perform the Pap test, as a result of grant funding from the US
Public Health Department. Within three years, this site became the first
nurse practitioner training program operating in the USA. By 1971, the WHCC
was fully established and funded by federal Title X dollars. The WHCC was
functioning successfully as a health care clinic, and intensive training
site for nurse practitioners for family planning and women¹s health care,
called the Women¹s Health Care Nurse Practitioner Program.
With the new California law that nurse practitioners must be Master¹s level
prepared, the Women¹s Health Care Nurse Practitioner Program graduated its
last class in November 2007, and transitioned into the Education Program,
offering continuing education for practicing nurses.
