Abstract

The University of Minnesota School of Nursing aims to fully incorporate comple mentary and alternative health philosophy and healing practices into its baccalau reate, master's and doctoral programs. A planning process (1998-99) included School of Nursing faculty, administrators, and representatives of the university's Center for Spirituality and Healing. A comprehensive course of action was devel oped that included strengthening didactic and experiential learning, offering indi vidualized plans of clinical study in a variety of modalities, improving access to an interdisciplinary graduate minor in Complementary Therapies and Healing Practic es, and encouraging faculty research initiatives and continuing education in CAM.
