Program Description


The Nurse-Herbalist Program (3 modules) will “root” your love of plant remedies deeply within nursing scope of practice. The program specifically addresses the legal, ethical, cultural, and professional practice issues for Registered Nurses, Advanced Practice Nurses, educators, and nurse-coaches, who apply and/or teach the application of herbs in the care and comfort of clients across the lifespan.

PROGRAM includes 2 distance learning modules (#1 and #2) and 1 face-to-face module (#3)

This program draws upon evidence from research, expert practice, and history as well as the students’ own plant relationships to model an integrative approach to plant partnership in practice. It includes content on translating botanical science to practice, traditional healing with plants, integrative nursing theory and practice, herbal recipes and remedies, cultural diplomacy and coaching skill, and Traditional Chinese Herbal Medicine philosophy in the application of the elements of nurses’ nature care—fire, air, water, earth, and ether. Case studies of nurse herbalism in a variety of practice settings, such as hospitals, clinics, home health, and hospice agencies, are provided to inspire the development and implementation of your own practice plan.
