Professor Dr. Kristen Lombard, chair of the new MSN program, just received her AHNCC Board Certification as an Advanced Holistic Nurse (AHN-BC)! This is her second board certification. In addition to her experience as a holistic nurse, her preparation for the 150 question exam was to attend the PCHS Zoom session with Dr. Margaret Erickson in January (recorded for our benefit) where Dr. Erickson talked about the Basic and Advanced Holistic Nurse certifications, the exam, what to study, and testing strategies. Then Kristen became BFFs with Dossey & Keegan’s Holistic Nursing: A Handbook for Practice (2022) and the Core Curriculum for Holistic Nursing (Helming, Barrere, Avino & Shields, 2014). She read every chapter and took the practice quizzes. She also did the AHNCC Practice Test of 50 questions to help prepare. It worked! She passed and we are all so proud as Dr. Lombard adds AHN-BC initials to her growing credentials.
