S3. Ep4. Aromatherapy Nursing and Nursing Research with Juli Reynolds, BSN, RN
Here from the fabulous Juli Reynolds, BSN, RN who had her start before nursing within a church helping people. We take a deep dive into her beginnings as a PACU nurse, as well as how she fell in love with holistic therapies and her certification as an aromatherapist. We discuss her love (as well as my love) for nursing research and what the Institutional Review Board (IRB) means and why they are so important. We discuss how all nurses should be trained by CITI Training (https://about.citiprogram.org/en/homepage/) and how to access and use the IRB to perform studies and eventually publish. Juli describes her new found love in nursing by finding her path with essential oils and the chemistry behind them – including how plants have made our way to modern medicines. She now co-leads the group Essential Oil Nurses, which includes a yearly conference! Learn how to get involved as a PACU nurse as well as how to get involved as a certified aromatherapy nurse.
