Alternative Nursing degree programs

  1. Hi - I've have many years of Critical CARE nursing working through out the US. For the past 5 years I've had my own business in Aromatherapy & Reflexology as well as an Instructor teaching applied aromatherapy classes.
    Does anyone know of advance acredited nursing degree programs in alternative medicine?

    thanks in advance

    These aren't specifically advanced nursing degrees, but you could do a masters program in Oriental Medicine (MOM) or a doctorate in Oriental Medicine (DOM). You might check out the website for Pacific College of Oriental Medicine. They may not have a school near you, but it would give you some idea of the possible advanced degrees available in alternative therapies. I've got a friend working on a MOM at PCOM in Chicago right now. She's loving it.

    I'm currently working on my ADN in Wisconsin. I'm planning to get a BSN, and then I'm considering the MOM program also. I would be interested to know what you find, and what you decide. Best of luck to you!

    Warm regards,

    If you haven't done it already, you may want to browse the Holistic Nursing forum (under the "Specialty" tab toward the top of the page) -- there have been some threads there now and again discussing which schools offer nursing grad degrees with a focus or emphasis on holistic nursing. That is probably as close as you will get within nursing, since the modalities you work with are separate disciplines outside of nursing.
