I know this is an old comment but I was wondering where you ended up going to school for naturopathic nursing?

Anyone wanting information on how to complete a degree that is focused in Holistic Nursing including the APHN (Advanced Practice Holistic Nurse) or if you are already an APRN and want to practice as and APHN follow up with the AHNCC.org to find the schools that are endorsed in Holistic Nursing and or the certification exams for all different categories as a holistic nurse or as a Nurse Coach. All are categories are title protected. Nurse Coaches can only call themselves NC if they are certified as such--same thing as we are already aware of as RNs or APRNs. All of them are title protected.

Just hilarious. Unless your spouse is a billionaire, and then none of it matters, it's just a silly hobby.

OK, end of very brief rant.

Holsitic medicine can be rewarding but you will not make alot of money. Most Nurses make more money than most Naturopathic physicians. Now you could also go to NP school and work in a clinic that specializes in integrative medicine as well.

Are we talking about medicine or nursing...two different professions?  ...and there is lies many of the problems. The other part of the problem is not knowing the differences between holistic nursing practice and integrative nursing practice. There's no reason for a holistic nurse to make less money than one who is not specialized in Holistic Nursing not even if the person practices integrative modalities. I certainly wouldn't work for less money when I have more education.

If discussing holistic medicine there's no reason that a holistic physician would be paid any differently than an allopathic physician. I pay just as much to my holistic docs as I do to an allopathic doctor. I prefer a Holistic MD because I'm treated better.

Naturopathic physicians are recognized in17 states. Nurses are obviously recognized in every state and yes a naturopathic physician will not make as much as an APRN. I haven't done the research to support my theory on the difference in salaries between an ND and an APRN so I will not write it because that is way too much speculation on my part.
