Please join us as we explore acupuncture and Oriental medicine as the next step on your career path. This session is recommended for nurses who wish to learn a system of medicine that recognizes and supports the totality of the human being - the interconnectedness of body, mind, nature, and spirit. We will look at the common ground nurses and acupuncturists share, the distinctions acupuncture and Oriental medicine offer to the healing arts, and what makes the acupuncture and Oriental medicine program at MUIH unique.
This session is led by seasoned instructor and former RN Linda Simons. As she shares information about our program and the richness of her journey with you, perhaps you will find your place of belonging here too.
This session is also being offered as a webinar on May 12.
