Nurses can now receive contact hours for learning the Transcendental Meditation technique.
Continuing education, or contact hours for nurses, usually gives one contact hour per hour of class for such courses as upgrading nursing skills, renewing licenses, or keeping up with current knowledge and techniques. When classes are completed, the course provider attaches the certification as 'contact hours' to a nurse's license number.
Since nurses often work in a stressful environment and Transcendental Meditation, (TM), is a technique for stress relief, it seems logical that one would benefit from the other.
Recently, the American Holistic Nurses Association (AHNA) approved this beneficial programme. The AHNA is an accredited approver of the American Nurses Credentialing Center's Commission on Accreditation.
The programme, 'Transcendental Meditation for Nurses: Developing capacity for improved judgment, decision-making and resilience under stress,' will be offered under the guidance of the TM Women Professionals organization. Approval for contact hours through AHNA is based on an assessment of the educational merit of this programme and does not constitute endorsement of the use of any specific modality in the care of clients.
