NUR 201 - Integrative Health Practices Across Cultures (3 credits)


This course does not require admission to the nursing major. Integrative health care is a synthesis or blend of conventional care with alternative and complementary healing therapies. This course is designed to introduce the student to an integrative healthcare approach, integrating allopathic healthcare with complementary and alternative modalities. Students will examine their own health beliefs/practices and compare healing practices and the consequences of health related choices. The background and current status of integrative healthcare, as well as health policy, legal, regulatory, and ethical issues will be explored. Medical terminology sufficient to communicate will be included. Commonly used alternative and complementary healing therapies, their uses, expected outcomes, and potential untoward effects that may be analyzed include acupressure, aromatherapy, herbal preparations, homeopathic remedies, imagery, music, nutritional supplements, reflexology, and therapeutic touch.
