Frequently Asked Questions
When are the program start dates?
Because the National Institute of Whole Health is approved to provide Whole Health training to over 3.5 million military family members around the world, there are no cohort or group start times. After an applicant is offered and accepts enrollment, they then select their chosen start date and begin on that day. All NIWH learners work with an academic adviser who is a licensed healthcare provider and a graduate of NIWH. There is ample opportunity to meet and interact with other learners through our 2 monthly live call-in seminars, the Student Forum, NIWH student Facebook, and through the Program Services office.
What do graduates do when they receive their credentials?
All NIWH learners are health or education professionals who are working in their respective fields and take the program to (1) enhance the work they are doing with their patients or clients (2) re-direct their work towards health and wellness education and advocacy.
You can work at your own pace completely on-line but have monthly live call ins, a 24-hour answer service available, our 4 staff member Program Services Department, an active and informative private Facebook for NIWH learners and grads, as well as ongoing e-mail communication with your adviser.
