Young Living, Urban Zen and Kent State in First-ever Nursing Program

SALT LAKE CITY—October 25, 2010

Nurses have always played a critical role in helping others, but that help often comes at the expense of their own personal health and well-being.

That was the primary message shared with 30 nursing students last month at Kent State’s College of Nursing. The students were the first to participate in a special curriculum of self-care for nurses, developed to help practitioners avoid being burned out in their demanding line of work. The curriculum is part of the Urban Zen Integrative Therapy (UZIT) program, which focuses on combining Eastern modalities and techniques (yoga therapy, essential oil therapy and Reiki) with Western medicine.

Young Living partnered with Urban Zen to provide an Everyday Oils kit for each participant, and Young Living Gold Member Tracy Griffiths taught the students about the science behind, and benefits of, essential oil therapy. Additional training was given by another UZIT instructor, who demonstrated yoga and other modalities nurses can use for their personal self-care practice.

“We felt that in order for our nursing students to better understand the potential of complementary and alternative therapies in health care, that they must experience these techniques and gain insight about these modalities on a personal level,” says David Pratt, director of advancement for Kent State School of Nursing. “Because of the generosity of Young Living Essential Oils and the expertise of the Urban Zen Integrated Therapist program, our nursing students have enthusiastically embraced their involvement in this unique ‘Care for the Caregiver’ pilot program.”

 
Urban Zen will continue to develop the self-care program in the coming semesters, and is working with other nursing and medical schools to create similar programs. Young Living will continue to support Urban Zen and other organizations that recognize the role of essential oil therapy and other holistic approaches to wellness.
