  Enroll in Course

This 12-hour CE bundle includes 3 courses that are designed to help nurses deepen their competence and confidence in caring for both their patients and themselves. All three courses are based on evidence from holistic nursing practice, research, and the biological, behavioral, and social sciences.


Learn to Be a Healing Presence to Support People Who Are Living with a Life-Threatening Illness (4 CE)
This 4-hour CE explores the challenges of helping people who are living with life-threatening illness and offers effective ways to respond to those challenges holistically.

Expand Your Empathy, Compassion & Resilience by Being Loving & True to Yourself (6 CE)
To sustainably care for others, nurses must care for themselves. Self-care not only helps us stay healthy, it also expands our capacity for empathy, compassion, and resilience. This 6-hour CE course will give you new self-care tools so that your are empowered to better care for others.

Learn How to Respond to the Spiritual Needs of People Who Are Living with Life-Threatening Illness (2 CE)
Studies show that people who have spiritual practices are healthier and live longer, but many nurses feel uncertain when the subject comes up because spirituality is both vast and profoundly personal. This 2-hour CE course is designed to help you center and strengthen yourself spiritually, no matter what your faith is, so you can respond more effectively to the needs of those you care for.

The author’s viewpoint is based on four principles:
  • Holism (from Greek holos, meaning "all, whole, entire"): the idea that systems (e.g., physical, biological, chemical, social, mental, environmental, etc.) and their properties must be viewed as wholes that are synergistic and more elegantly powerful than just collections of their parts.
  • Our spirit does not die. It leaves the body and continues living.
  • By facing the reality of death, we receive vital gifts that empower us to joyfully live!
  • We are filled with love and light when we support each other to live and leave in peace.

Awakening to Grace is approved as a provider of continuing education for nurses by the Florida Board of Nurses: CE Provider #50-17367. We welcome your comments, questions, suggestions, and personal stories. Simply email us at [email protected]

Sharon Burch perceives life through her instinct and intuition then uses education, planning, and evaluation to guide her clients.

Sharon is a board-certified Public Health Nurse Specialist, an Advanced Practice Holistic Nurse, and a holistic Health and Wellness Nurse-Coach. She is also certified by the Four Winds Society as an Energy Medicine Practitioner and a Teacher of Dying Consciously.

Sharon has practiced nursing in hospitals, long term care, home care, hospice, and the community-at-large since 1974. She began applying holistic health approaches in 1977 when she prepared for giving birth at home. That experience inspired her to dedicate herself to empowering people to end ways of being that are not aligned with their values and embody new ways that are stronger, wiser, and more life-affirming instead.

She has authored two textbooks and more than 40 home study CE courses for holistic nurses and massage therapists, founded the nonprofit organization Awakening to Grace, and serves part-time at the American Holistic Nurses Association (AHNA) as a Holistic Nurse Practice Specialist.

Sharon believes that nothing would help the world so much as for people to be supported to make lasting change in their thoughts and behaviors. To that end, she acts with creativity, conviction, and sensitivity to guide and empower her clients and her community.

Through HolisticNursingCE.com, Sharon helps nurse change makers find their clarity and direction, then take the steps necessary to create and market outstanding online self-study CNE courses.

Through the Atma Clinic, she helps people who are stuck in chronic pain to find meaningful, sustainable relief.
