    A course designed to introduce the principles of nursing practice extended by anthroposophy. It includes a range of Anthropsophic Nursing topics that address the anthropsophic foundations of nursing assessment, diagnosis, interventions, healing impulses, and also focuses on personal and professional development.

    The foundation training is held in one-week intensives, annually for three years. During these years, students desiring certification as an Anthroposophic Nurse are required to continue with self-study assignments and work with an experienced Anthroposophic Nurse mentor.

    To be eligible for Certification as an Anthroposophic Nurse the following requirements must be met:

    • Current license as a registered nurse
    • Attendance at the Foundation Course in Anthroposophic Nursing for three years.
    • Work with a mentor for two years.
    • Complete required papers, plant-study, nursing care reports and documentation of self-study.
    • Satisfactory assessment of practical skills and knowledge conducted during the third year of training.

    Registered nurses and others who seek knowledge and self development, but are not interested in certification are also welcome to attend the week long courses, but will not be eligible for certification without complete compliance with self-study and course requirements.

    The 2019 week-long intensive will take place 
    April 27-May 4, in Chestnut Ridge, New York.


    Current NAANA members receive a registration discount (as reflected on the registration form). Current nursing students may be eligible for Student Nurse pricing. A limited number of work-study discounts of $200 are available, and there are limited scholarship funds as well.

    • The Medical Section at the Goetheanum in Dornach, Switzerland

    Pregnancy, birth and early childhood - how do we create the basis for healthy development of the human being?
    Presented by the Medical Section at the Goetheanum

    The early part of life exerts a defining influence on our health for the rest of our lives.  Parents are reliant on support during this early phase in the life of their children; at the same time they are often still uncertain and very open towards suggestions from others. 
     
    The CARE I working group of the Medical Section at the Goetheanum has attempted to make a start on working out a position on an interdisciplinary basis across specialisms in the fields of pregnancy support, obstetrics, nursing and neonatology, early intervention, artistic therapies as well as in the educational and medical support of parents and their children. 
     
    The task of CARE I is seen as seeking to obtain concrete insights from the perspective of spiritual science to support everyone working in this field. These can then be used to build comprehensible, experience-based concepts for the respective issues and disorders which can be applied in practice. The presentation of these concepts for professionals will be supplemented with formats for communication with expectant mothers and with parents. 
     
    This colloquium is intended to present and debate the content which has been developed so far. 
     
    This invitation is extended to all foundation years specialists: gynaecologists as well as midwives, neonatologists, paediatricians and general practitioners, nurses and teachers, psychotherapists and therapists, social workers as well as active representatives of parent associations.

    We look forward to the exchange of views.
