Learn about caring through an Integral-Holistic Curriculum.


In recent years, holistic nursing has begun to find its rightful way back into contemporary nursing, effectively tying together medical breakthroughs with a nurturing and healing approach. This is the very premise of UMA’s BS program. It takes the best of modern medicine, health, and caring, and ties it together with all the profession has learned over the past 100 years.

With UMA’s integral-holistic curriculum based in Jean Watson’s Theory of Human Caring, Barbara Dossey’s theory of Integral Nursing, and Ken Wilber’s Integral Philosophy, our RN Completion program is not just about the patient.

As a student here, you will learn:

  • how to take better care of yourself in a profession that we know firsthand can be incredibly stressful.
  • to create meaningful and sustainable caring-healing nursing practices that support why you became a nurse in the first place.
  • knowledge and skills beyond the ASN foundation to enhance your practice.
