UMA’s Holistic Nursing Program will prepare you with skills in clinical practice, communication, critical thinking and writing, research, and leadership.
One degree | Two Holistic Nursing Pathways
The Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) is rapidly becoming the preferred educational credential for registered nurses, and we are delighted to help students earn this credential. UMA offers the Bachelor of Science Degree with a major in Holistic Nursing with two pathways to degree completion; the traditional 4-Year program and the RN-BSN completion option. Holistic nursing focuses on the individualized care of the patient based on the principle that a patient’s biological, social, psychological, spiritual, and environmental aspects are all connected and need to be attended to individually while fostering healing relationships.
Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN)
UMA offers a 4-year pre-licensure holistic Nursing Program. This rigorous program prepares students to sit for the NCLEX and enter the field as registered nurses. This 4-year program is available at multiple UMA locations, including a residential opportunity in partnership with the University of Maine at Farmington. Students will be enrolled in UMA’s program while taking courses from both UMF and UMA, and enjoying a residential campus experience at UMF.
RN to BSN Completion Program
A program for registered nurses with their Associate’s Degree, our RN Completion Program offers a combination of fully online and blended learning courses. With a holistic approach and blended format, you will transform as a nurse and earn the qualifications necessary to take your career in new directions, to assume professional leadership positions, to adapt to the changing nature of health care and health care roles, to integrate the new science of informatics into your practice, and to pursue a graduate degree.
