Nursing Program


PIHMA to Launch Holistic Nursing Program


PIHMA is very pleased to announce that starting in August it will offer a new Holistic Nursing program.  The program provides continuing education for nurses that will help them expand their awareness of the array of healing modalities available to patients, incorporate mind-body-spirit into their own self caring practices and those of patients and the community, and advance nursing skills in various healing modalities.  Offered over five 3-day weekends, the program will run from August through December of this year.  Can't make this year?  No worries, PIHMA will also be running the program again in Spring and Fall of 2012, and beyond.  For more information, contact sroe@pihma.edu.

Corrections & Clarifications 


On April 19th, 2011, PIHMA advertised a lecture by Dr. Eric Love on the Bach Flower remedies, inadvertently using the Bach logo. Dr. Eric Love is not affiliated with Bach remedies, the Dr. Edward Bach Centre, or the Bach International Education Program. He is an independent practitioner, who provides consultation and coaching using Bach Flower Remedies.
