I am seriously thinking about taking a Certificate Program or The Bachelors in Natural Health at Clayton College. I completed an online course called Natural Health and Wellness and really enjoyed the course. It has brought about a real interest in Natural Health, for me. I thought about getting the Certificate to become a Herbal Professional, first then completing the Bachelors Degree in Natural Health. My hope is to become a Doctor of Naturopathy and open an office someday, maybe in my own home, as my sons are grown.
The reason, I want to complete the herbal course is because this area really interests me right now. Plus I love growing things, etc.
Renarian, you received your Masters through Clayton, is there a future in this? Any advise or suggestions? Anyone else complete a degree or certificate through Clayton College?
They are accredited just not by traditional bodies. I have only had one company say they would not honor my BS/MS and they did not even like my ADN as it was from a technical college. It is a great program and I learned alot. I worked my heiny off and got each degree in one year but I read 98 books to do it. I am considering enrolling in the PhD program in 2004. I cannot say I have every heard anyone call it a joke??? I worked full time and did nothing for two years except work and study. LOL. I even took my homework to Virginia Beach and sat on the beach and studied.
I have consulted with home health and worked with docs on dietary plans and the docs loved it, so did the clients and so did the nurses who know very little about enzymes, antioxidants and things as such going down to the celluar levels of interactions and actions/reactions. I am planning on contracting with companies in the future for the like.I also have consulted with agencies on wound care healing and diet and have done studies to prove it has helped facilitate healing. I learned so much I cannot even place a value on my education. I enjoyed it very much and had great instructors and advisors. Much better than the attention I got in nursing school with a class of 500 students where you could not get an ounce of attention if your life depended on it. I got high honors in my BS and honors in my MS.
Just my thoughts LOL. Oh yes my income did a consider jump for a joke?? I am laughing my way to the bank. No one asked who gave their seal of approval either on my courses. I also did plenty of research papers, some with over 20 sources to complete them, did studies myself and did on line tests.
My BS/MS are in holistic nutrition. Oh by the way I worked full time over time and have 5 children-4 in college. It was very flexable and I could study at any time of the day or night. I would highly recommend it for me.
Can you tell I loved getting my degrees at Clayton!!
