Vulvodynia is a serious women’s health concern in the United States (US). Prevalence data from a study funded by the National Institute of Health (NIH) indicates that six million women in the US suffer with this disorder (Harlow & Stewart, 2003). Many women are unable to find knowledgeable providers who treat vulvodynia leaving women with vulvar pain disorders in the US underserved. Studies support that Advanced Practice Nurses (APNs) provide expert care to their patients with a greater focus on psychosocial support. Therefore, APNs should be considered as a solution to this healthcare need. This Doctoral of Nursing Practice (DNP) capstone project asked the following question: Will a needs assessment, in the form of an anonymous survey of APNs, identify the educational needs of APNs to care for women with vulvodynia and support the development of an educational program? A national survey of APNs identified that APNs are not comfortable diagnosing and treating vulvar disorders and need further education in vulvodynia, atypical vaginal infections and vulvar skin disorders. The information gleaned from this survey provided the foundation for an educational program that comprises this capstone project. Lippitt’s Change Theory guided this DNP project with the goal to improve the care for women with vulvodynia and promote change in the health care system.
