Holistic Nurses Entrepreneurs

  1. I have read an interesting article yesterday about how Holistic Nursing is the future as well as geriatric nursing. I wanted to know has anyone had success starting a business in holistic?

    Please keep me posted. What kind of business have you started?

    I, too, am passionate about holistic nursing and somehow forming a career that can focus on holistic, alternative, nutrition/lifestyle based practices. I am so discouraged with our current healthcare system. Searching for others who are passionate about a different way for nurses to expand their knowledge and use alternative/prevention/herbal strategies for health! We have the tools and resources to prevent so many diseases and illnesses and treat them naturopathically without resorting to pharmaceutical drugs that cause one negative side effect after the other and aren't doing anything to educate people on how to maintain healthy lifestyles. We are only treating the symptoms - we need to be re-forming bodies so that people can heal and prosper! I would love to hear from other nurses who feel the same!

    I too am interested in alternative/nutrition and lifestyle based practices. I would ultimately love to be in an integrative/functional medicine office. I just haven't come across many RN opportunities being advertised. I see MA postings on occasion. It makes me feel like the only answer is to get my ANP. That is likely what I will do, but I wonder about the billing/insurance/liability obstacles that might be part of being integrative. Does anyone have any information on those items?

    Wondering if you had considered looking into essential oils particularly in the geriatric population? The nursing home industry is always looking for ways to decrease psychotropic medications and you may want to look into raindrop therapy with essential oils...just a thought.

    I am interested in the same things you mentioned. Too many friends and relatives around me being affected by cancer and when the HPV vaccine was forcibly pushed on my non-dating, autism spectrum daughter at her visits after I had started to read some concerning reports about it, I started to question lots of things. The push with the vaccines on every single patient without taking their particular situation into consideration and using false information to scare people into complying makes me angry. I was thrilled to find CE s available in alternative health two years ago and the use of CBD oil seems very interesting.
    I am starting to explore what I can do with these interests and passion that I have.

    I, too, would like to know how I can begin as an independent holistic nurse with certificates of various modalities...and how to incorporate CBD oil into that career.

    CBD oil has recently been deemed a schedule I drug.

    Be careful there are way to many so called health coach programs using a business model that recruits "health coaches" to sell their products. I highly suggest to do your own due diligence.

    Are there any programs you've done or researched that you would recommend? Thanks

    Hi Kathy, I am currently looking at a few programs now. You really want to find a program on evidenced based training and has a structure that provides behavioral change skills and specialty. I highly suggest to speak to people who are already in a program that interest you.
