Pacific College of Health and Science Announces Master of Science in Holistic Nursing Education

Pacific College of Health and Science today announced its new Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) degree program, the first graduate degree in the United States specializing in holistic nursing, with tracks in nurse-coach and nurse educator, including a medical cannabis specialization option. The 40-credit program features a focus on holistic and integrative healthcare and offers a groundbreaking curriculum with courses such as psychoneuroimmunology and advanced holistic pharmacology. It is 100% online and under the umbrella of Pacific College’s prestigious WSCUC accreditation.    

Pacific College’s cutting-edge MSN program was created in part to answer a growing crisis in healthcare: nursing professionals’ burnout triggered by the COVID-19 pandemic, and a shrinking workforce due to harsh working conditions. The program also prepares its graduates to lead the healing of healthcare from the inside-out, starting with care of self and then expanding out to care of colleagues, patients and families, healthcare organizations, and communities.

Upon completion, nurses will be prepared to provide holistic and integrative nursing education in academia, hospitals, healthcare systems, and private practice consulting. As many hospitals expand to Integrative Healthcare (IHC) due to patient demand for complementary healthcare services, this curriculum teaches students to use evidence-based scientific and holistic knowledge as a foundation for their roles in nursing education. Students will also deepen their understanding of cutting-edge integrative and healing modalities, and learn to educate and coach patients about them.

“New York University Langone Health has been affiliated with Pacific College for five years, providing clinical experiences for their RN to BSN and holistic nursing students in the areas of healthcare leadership, community health, and integrative health and medicine. This relationship has been a mutually valuable collaboration between our nursing staff, administrative leaders, and PCHS nursing students,” said Debra Albert, DNP, MBA, RN, NEA-BC Chief Nursing Officer, and Senior Vice President for Patient Care Service at New York University Langone Health. “Together, we have worked to support the educational goals of nurses as well as the advancement of holistic health and integrative medicine approaches in the inpatient setting and in local communities.”

Graduates of this Holistic Nursing MSN will be prepared to work in existing or emerging traditional, integrative, holistic healthcare settings, or in private practice. They will also be ready to sit for the appropriate holistic nurse, advanced holistic nurse, or nurse coach board certification exams offered through the American Holistic Nurses Credentialing Corporation (AHNCC). With the appropriate number of clinical hours, graduates can sit for the board certification exams for Nurse Educator or Nurse Professional Development Specialist. The prerequisite for entering the holistic MSN Program is a bachelor’s degree in nursing (BSN).

The faculty leading Pacific College of Health and Science’s MSN (Holistic Nursing) Program features professionals highly credentialed in the world of integrative medicine, including:

“Pacific College of Health and Science has always been at the forefront of holistic and integrative nursing education, and our new MSN program continues in that tradition,” said Malcolm Youngren, Interim CEO at Pacific College of Health and Science. “We are very proud to work with the top educators in the space to provide our students with an unparalleled educational experience not offered anywhere else in the country.”
