I am currently a RN-BSN working in a Holistic Family Practice Clinic. I am ready to move on from the company I work for and am want to still be able to use my degree, but have not interest in any other form of nursing. I am looking for other ideas of what I can use my degree for and still do holistic nursing in some form. I do not have any special certifications and would be interested to hear what other people have found to be good sources for this. I living in Wilmington, NC and there aren't too many schools near me that have specialized training. I would love to find something that I can do on my own and have my own business possibly one day. Any suggestions or ideas would be great.
When I was on vacation in California and Arizona, I noticed that holistic medicine and holistic therapies seem to enjoy greater acceptance than on the East Coast and that there are many more opportunities for employment in holistic practices. There are also many more opportunities for holistic education in many forms. That said, Holistic Nursing is not necessarily practiced in Holistic Medicine or Holistic Therapy practices. Holistic Nursing is a specialty that is practiced wherever one happens to be. It is very "holistic" in that way.
That said, if you are interested in working in holistic medicine/holistic therapies, whether or not you are a Holistic Nurse, I suggest you look out West. Maybe even a google search for holistic therapies in Arizona, California, New Mexico, etc. There are certainly many opportunities to have our own business if you offer something that people are willing to pay for...
