Healing With the Arts Course for Nurses

Associate Professor at University of Florida Mary Rockwood Lane, Ph.D., RN, FAAN,  will conduct a unique, 12-week online course, Healing With The Arts: Transpersonal Nursing as Ontologial Artist. She teaches Creativity and Spirituality in Healthcare in the undergraduate and graduate college.


Endorsed by Watson Caring Science Institute, this course is an opportunity for the nurse artist and healer to turn their attention inward and tap into the inner wellspring of creativity, light, brilliance and capabilities. Healing with the Arts can be a powerful way to cope with the stresses of caregiving.


Students will build a foundation to integrate arts into clinical practice, using nursing knowledge and caring theory of caring-healing arts; unlock their creative process using guided imagery; integrate advanced nursing therapeutics into their practice, including visual arts, written word, movement and music; learn alongside those in the journey toward transpersonal knowing as an ontological artist through the caring, supportive online community; and create an original art piece.
