Overview | Quality Matters Information | Careers

This 33 credit concentration advances knowledge of contemporary views of healing and holistic nursing practice grounded in caring. The Advanced Holistic Nursing (AHN) concentration courses offer content and practice in the integration of mind-body practices, manipulative body practices, and energy-based healing modalities to promote health and well-being.

Students will earn a MSN degree and are eligible to sit for Board Certification in Advanced Holistic Nursing (AHN-BC). The Advanced Holistic Nursing Concentration does not prepare students to enter a Nurse Practitioner role.

Applicants with an earned Master’s degree in Nursing can earn a post master’s certificate (PMC) in Advanced Holistic Nursing. A gap analysis is conducted to identify required courses and practicum hours. All PMC students must complete NGR 6110 Advanced Nursing Practice Grounded in Caring. Nurse Practitioners may be particularly interested in a PMC in Advanced Holistic Nursing.

Completely online, full and part time study is available. The practicum needs of students in various geographic areas can be accommodated.

Preceptor and practicum site decisions are determined in collaboration with Faculty. The practicum hours may be completed at the students’ place of employment, if appropriate, with an approved preceptor.

Massachusetts has initiated the process to join NC-SARA and are expected to be approved by the end of this year. Massachusetts state authorization restricts activities in internships and supervised academic field experiences. Therefore, any distance learning student in the College of Nursing who will be residing in Massachusetts while participating in their academic program should contact the college before enrolling to assure they are compliant with state authorization rules.
