As the pioneer and leader of the national Whole Health movement, the pre-requisites NIWH require allow professional learners to integrate whole health knowledge and skills into their current work or practice. At the same time, NIWH learners earn nationally accredited and approved continuing education contact hours necessary to satisfy on-going licensure or recertification requirements.
The entrance requirements for the NIWH 3-in-1 Whole Health Education programs are in keeping with national guidelines for the practice of, and employment in, the fields of medicine, allied health, mental health, wellness education, patient health education and other areas of healthcare.
The criteria is a credential, degree or license, as described in the pre-requisite list below, which allows the learner to incorporate the NIWH Patient Health Education training into their professional scope of practice and allow them to purchase nationally available malpractice insurance for education counseling. These criteria will qualify them for a National Provider Identification (NPI) number as a patient health educator.
HOWEVER, please note, non-credentialed individuals may enroll in the program and take courses with a waiver of understanding that no credential, diploma, NPI number, liability insurance or billing and coding manual will be available to them upon completion of the program. They can at any time complete a prerequisite credential program and then qualify for credentialing.
