Holistic Nursing Programs

  1. 0
    Has anyone attended the master's programs in holistic nursing at NYU or the University of Tennessee in Nashville? Has anyone gone through the Holistic nursing program at the New York College for asian bodywork and TCM training? I would appreciate any program feedback. Also, let me know if there are other programs out there such as master herbal programs, etc.

    I have my BSN, and I am looking to work in holistic/preventative/wellness healthcare. I currently work in critical care to pay the bills, but I have a fun job one day a week at an Acupuncture Centre. I hope to assist people in natural healing, and I'd like to get some sound, legitimate credentials to achieve this. My interests are in nutrition, herbs, and bodywork.

    while in TN for advanced training in Healing Touch, I met 2 ladies completing the Holistic MSN at TSU in Nashville. Both nurses had different interests & focus. One was to use her degree to persue assisting people in the mental health field with addiction but using mind-body techniques, Healing Touch, progressive relaxation, massage, etc. The other lady wanted a family practice approach to families in the working poor bracket. They work but make too much for subsidy but cannot afford insurance. She wanted to educate these people on better choices for nutrition, family planning, relaxation, Healing Touch, infant massage, all to promote a closer knit family unit. Upon questioning the ladies extensively over our 4 day program, they shared that they loved the holistic MSN & believed that it was a blessing to train amongst people with like views in caring for the client (not the patient-which is quite paternal). they wanted to involve the client/s in the care rendered & give choices that were affordable, educational & with low risk of side effect.
    This was in 2003 I believe when I met them. Hope this helps somewhat....

    I know this thread is old, but am also looking into holistic nursing programs and now in 2008 can still only find the NYU and TSU degrees. Does anyone know if there are any others out there? Are there any distance programs? Thanks so much for any help I can get in this!

    Holistic Nursing does not lend itself to distance education, however, you can attend training as a Holistic Nurse outside the University setting.
    Try this link:

    www.BirchTreeCenter.com

    I recently took Session 1 and I highly recommend it.

    Does it give you a certification? Their website is not that clear.

    TSU is a distance program for a MSN, but that is all I can find and have not heard back from them after my inquiry into their program.

    The BirchTree Center offers more than one course. The Web site has information buried within it, so be sure to go into each of the areas and explore everything, even if it doesn't sound like what you are interested in.

    There are 1 day courses an individual can go to one of their centers to take and there are 1 day courses they will bring to your hospital. These courses lead only to CEUs.

    Their Integrative Healing Arts Program is a 4 session (3-4 days per session with homework between sessions) course which leads to a certificate and eligibility to apply for Certification from the American Holistic Nurses Association and sit for their exam. Although there are requirements other than just attending the course to be approved to sit for the exam, in the course itself they explain how those other requirements can be met, including the employment requirement. The full 4 sessions takes approximately 1 year to complete.

    Drexel has a 12-credit certificate program. You can check it here:

    I think all or or most of it can be done online.
