Quinnipiac University receives recognition for nursing program


Individuals who wish to launch careers in the healthcare industry, particularly in nursing, may have excellent job opportunities, as the Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that overall employment of these professionals is supposed to increase dramatically over the next several years. In an effort to help prepare more adults for careers in healthcare, a number of schools, such as Quinnipiac University (QU), are offering degrees in this field.

The school's undergraduate and graduate nursing programs have also received an endorsement from the American Holistic Nurses' Certification Corporation (AHNCC), according to the university. The distinction puts QU in an elite group of three schools that have received this endorsement for both their graduate and undergraduate nursing programs. A total of 15 universities have received recognition from the AHNCC, none of which are in Connecticut, except QU.

Thanks to the endorsement, students who graduate from QU's nursing program will only have to take a final comprehensive exam to become a certified holistic nurse. Without an endorsement, students would be required to work as a holistic nurse for a year with a registered nurse license, take a minimum of 48 continuing education units and complete an additional written component.
