Taught Course: Clinical Aromatherapy for Health Professionals

Jane Buckle was approached by Charlotte McGuire, the founder of the American Holistic Nurses Association (AHNA) at the AHNA conference in Ashville, NC in 1995 and asked if she would write an aromatherapy course for nurses. The answer was yes! A teacher’s qualification, an MA in Clinical Aromatherapy and a PhD later, the course has been taught to over 2,000 nurses.

This was the course used by the Massachusetts State Board of Nursing (BON) as a blueprint to accept clinical aromatherapy as part of holistic nursing care in 1997 – the first BON to do so.  For more about clinical aromatherapy in nursing click here.  For more about clinical aromatherapy in hospitals click here.
