Become a Holistic Nurse in Any Practice Setting

Rediscover the heart and art of nursing, and meet the continuing education (CE) requirements for holistic nursing certification or recertification. The American Holistic Nurses Association Integrative Healing Arts Program in Holistic Nursing (IHAP), a unique, three-session, 84-hour continuing nursing education (CNE) program, will be held August 15 to 18; November 14 to 17; and March 5 to 8, 2020, at the Pendle Hill retreat and conference center, in Wallingford, Pennsylvania.

The faculty will be Colleen Delaney, Ph.D., RN, Advanced Holistic Nurse board-certified, of Woodbury, Connecticut, and Catherine M. Alvarez, RN, MA, Holistic Nurse Baccalaureate certified, of Orange, Connecticut.

Core topics, developed during all three sessions, include Art of Authentic Communication; Caring for Self, Caring for Others; Philosophy and Spirituality in Healing; Theory for Holistic Nursing Practice; Nutrition for Body, Mind and Spirit; Energy Systems and Energy Healing; and 

Transformational Leadership for Change. Each session also includes a one-day immersion topic: Clinical Aromatherapy, Therapeutic Music and Guided Imagery and Jin Shin Jyutsu.

Graduates receive a certificate in holistic nursing and integrative modalities; become an instrument of healing for themselves and others; and are equipped to provide holistic healing arts in all healthcare settings.

A recent participant said, “IHAP is an amazing way to be taken care of, to care for myself, and to bring energetic and calm compassion into practice. Highly recommended!” 

Enrollment is open until July 18. Limited to 40 participants. For more information, and to register, visit
