Together we can inspire and train a new generation of nurse leaders in integrative health care.
The INFF is a first-of-its-kind program preparing nurse-educators to transform teaching/learning using the science, theory and practice of integrative health. During a 12-month fellowship, you will creatively and effectively incorporate integrative nursing into education programs.
Join Our Diverse Team of Educators!
“I have been practicing nursing since 1991 and as a nurse practitioner since 1998. Although I have loved nursing I have over time felt conflicted that while I felt I was giving ‘good’ nursing care I felt rushed, less able to establish real relationships with the patients I cared for, and prescribing medications and treatments that I would not prescribe to myself. I wanted to learn more about integrative nursing. I came to the program thinking about all the actions I could take if I had more ‘alternative’ treatments to pull out of my toolbox! What I realize now is that while [these] are part of care, I have to trust myself that building relationships and walking with our patients toward healing is really what I want to achieve with my patients, my students and my own practice.” -2017-2018 Fellow
Through the INFF we will shift, invigorate, strengthen and challenge your perspective of nursing and how to teach it, both in academic and clinical settings.
