Online Postbaccalaureate Holistic Nursing Certificate

Online Postbaccalaureate Holistic Nursing Certificate

Eager to bring a more relationship-centered perspective to conventional healthcare, but already have your bachelor's in nursing?

PCOM’s all-online Holistic Nursing Certificate program has been specially designed to take a broader view on healing through:

  • Disease prevention and health maintenance
  • Partnering with patients, families, and communities
  • Quality of life improvements
  • Self-care techniques
  • Integrative holistic modalities

Nursing is an art and science emanating from a caring-healing framework. Holistic nursing programs focus on healing the whole person, recognizing the interrelationship of the bio-psychosocial-cultural-spiritual-energetic-environmental dimensions of the person. It emphasizes protecting and promoting health and wellness, and supporting people to find meaning, peace and harmony. The holistic nurse practitioner who graduates from PCOM's online progam partners with individuals, families, and communities to promote healing while honoring the individual's subjective experience about health and illness. The program is also endorsed by the AHNCC, which identifies PCOM as an institution producing nurses that will participate as transformational leaders, capable of helping to shift the focus of healthcare paradigm from illness and disease to health promotion, wellness, and wellbeing.

Student Testimonial

"With a business and family to take of, education takes on a new dimension. Time becomes more precious, and educational requirements are no longer the main goal so much as the wish to learn more--more about the people we serve, more about who we are in this lifetime, about our purpose and skills. If this is what you too seek, then there is no better place to start than here at PCOM: opening doors you never knew you had!"

- Jessica Senecal
