    Hi are you an ahna member? If not than it's the American holistic nursing association and they list a variety if programs that provide contact hours, if you become a member you will also receive the beginnings magazine and the journal of holistic nursing, both publications provide contact hours with each issue and you can access them online as well.

    i recnetly took a healing touch class which provides 16 contact hours.


    i eventually would like to have my holistic nursing certification as well, so the things I've mentioned are helping me get there

    Thanks for the ahna info. I will have to check that out! Preventative and holistic care also interests me!

    I recently completed the AHNA "Foundations of Holistic Nursing" home study course which was FANTASTIC and is worth 65 contact hours -- it uses Dossey's Holistic Nursing Handbook as the main text, and I believe it was a really good way to start preparing for the exam too. You have nine months to complete the course. It was really wonderful.

    Has anyone else taken this course? If so, what are your thoughts?
