NIWH Graduate Spotlight Questionnaire
Fern Wargotz, BSN, HNB – BC, WHE
Q: What drew you to the Whole Health field and the National Institute of Whole Health?
A: “I had been searching all my Nursing life for a program like this. A program that was in alignment with my values and my Philosophical approach in caring with and for others. NIWH is the only Nationally Accredited program that offered the Credential in Whole Health Education. I am grateful that I have been able to realize a goal that I had envisioned 10 years ago.
The program encourages the learner to begin to understand what Whole Health really means and how to be able to translate it in a meaningful way to our clients and, in turn, the world. As an additional benefit, the program facilitates opportunities in Emotional, Physical, Nutritional, Spiritual growth in its students. This program set the stage for a growth and evolvement in my professional as well as my personal life.”
Q: Did the Whole Health training meet your professional goals?
A. “Yes, and then some! I was not aware of the in-depth opportunities that this program offers. I have achieved more than I had thought was possible. Both my Board Certification in Holistic Nursing and my Whole Health Education Credential, are my most valued credentials of my Nursing Career.”
Q: How are you applying the training?
A. “I have created my own Company, “Whole Health and You”, with a website and clients. I love working with clients supporting and offering them information for their health and wellness goals. I make my own hours and have the ability to choose whom I work with. I truly enjoy educating others on the Whole Health principles. Most importantly, I am able to utilize this information for myself and my loved ones as well.”
Q: Would you recommend this program to others?
A. “I could talk about this program once a day and twice on Sunday! Without any doubt I recommend this program! – As long as students understood this is an in-depth program not a short cut. It is a robust, accredited program. This program has been life changing!”
