NU 303 - Complementary and Alternative Healthcare


Currently, US citizens spend more out of pocket money on complementary and alternative healthcare and treatment than on traditional Western Medicine. Nurses and other providers need to be familiar with a variety of forms of treatment and the evidence that supports their use in practice. This course provides the student with knowledge of an array of alternative and complementary treatments including bodywork, massage, aromatherapy, acupuncture, herbal treatments, meditation, and mindfulness based stress reduction and other modalities. Students will review the use and efficacy of each practice and recognize the potential for incorporating alternative and complementary treatments into care planning for individuals and groups. Students will complete a major project related to a select modality. Semester Credit Hours 3.00 semester credit hours. Prerequisites: None. Corequisite: None.
