Is there a program that teaches NP how to heal though natural medicine?
U. of San Diego has an intergrative healing option (two classes - one theory with healing touch and reiki as some of the components, and one clinical). You can check them out.
NURS 216 Integrative Health Care (3)
Focuses on promoting integration of body, mind, and spirit through incorporating the best of both conventional and complementary approaches to health promotion and the diagnosis and treatment of a variety of common health problems. Explores the role of the nurse practitioner as healer and the healing modalities commonly used within nursing, as well as the science of psychoneuroimmunology and quantum physics that underlie the phenomena of mind-body healing. Compares and contrasts selected culturally-based, holistic systems of knowledge concerning health and illness to identify commonalities and differences in these major healing traditions. Addresses ethical and business considerations related to integrating conventional and complementary approaches in ambulatory care.
NURS 217 Integrative Health Care Practicum (2)
Provides clinical practice in primary care settings wherein the health care providers include biomedically-trained physicians and nurse practitioners as well as providers of complementary therapies, or where patients are frequently referred to appropriate providers of complementary therapies in the community. Supervision is provided by nurse practitioner faculty; weekly seminars assist in the synthesis of didactic and clinical learning within the context of actual clinical cases. Prerequisites: At least one credit concurrent with NURS 216. (Repeatable for credit)
