I’m wondering if you found any clarity in your question?
I have a BSN and am taking the Integrative Healing Arts Program offered by the AHNA. It is a great course and opens you up to so many modalities. This fall I will take the board certification exam. This is my first step to becoming an official Holistic Nurse.
I too want to do more. I have looked at the program in Minnesota and also a couple of NP programs. I haven’t found anything that I love enough to take the leap of going back to school.
I was interested in Naturopathic Medicine school, but I am glad I didn’t go that route. An ND just shared with me that school, at one of the private ND programs can leave you with about $250,000 in debt and the average ND make about $70,000 a year. He said he wished that he had gone the NP route and then supplemented learning the holistic therapies via CEUs.
There is also a new cannabis Nurse association and learning program. They are working on an official certification program.
Best of luck
