Transformative Nurse Training Program - multiple locations
The Transformative Nurse Training (TNT) program is one of several integrative health training programs offered by Allina Health’s Penny George Institute for Health and Healing. It was developed by integrative health nurse clinicians to offer nurses an opportunity for professional and personal transformation.
Managing clinical issues of pain, anxiety, nausea, stress and sleep is an ongoing challenge in health care today. Studies have shown significant benefit from incorporating integrative therapies into patient care. Research has also demonstrated that nurses who participated in the TNT program report that integrative therapies can improve patients’ quality of life. They felt that they received adequate knowledge to use integrative therapies for others, and used integrative therapies in their own lives personally and professionally.
Taught by integrative health nurses and practitioners, the 32-hour curriculum is grounded in holistic nursing philosophy, principles and theory, with a focus on professional development and self-care. It introduces the use of basic massage, guided imagery and relaxation techniques within the context of relationship-centered care.
Teaching methods include lecture, interactive discussions, experiential practice sessions and mentorship.
