Many hospitals and healthcare settings are moving to integrative healthcare (IHC) due to patient demand for complementary healthcare services. Pacific College of Health and Science’s Master of Science in Nursing (MSN degree) teaches students to use evidence-based scientific and holistic knowledge as a foundation for their roles in nursing education and coaching.

Students will also deepen their understanding of cutting-edge integrative and healing modalities and educate/coach patients about them.

Upon completion, you will be able 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, you may also be able to sit for the board certification exams for the Nurse Educator or Nurse Professional Development Specialist. The pre-requisite for entering the MSN program is a bachelor’s degree in nursing (BSN).
