Northern’s RN-BSN Program Recognized for Excellence in Holistic Nursing Education

AHNA_logoRGBNorthern New Mexico College’s RN-BSN Nursing Program was awarded the Excellence in Holistic Nursing Education Award by the American Holistic Nurse Association this June.

The award was accepted by the program's Associate Director Dr. Darlene Hess and alumnus Christine Woolsey at the 35th Annual AHNA Conference in Branson, Missouri. More than 400 holistic nurses from across the country attended the conference.

“This award means that we have been innovative in our approach to providing holistic nursing education,” Hess said. “Our program is significant in that the entire framework emerged from holistic nursing core values and standards of practice.”

Northern’s program was the only winner in its category among nationwide applicants. The presence of an evidence-based service learning project and the use of alternative health assessment frameworks helped set the program apart.

The College’s RN-BSN program has been endorsed by the American Holistic Nurses Credentialing Corporation since April 2013.

The College of Nursing thanks the students, alumni, and community partners who provided letters of support that made this honor possible.
