Dr. Fujio McPherson, LTC (ret). I started my career as a young combat medic providing direct care to solider's. Wanting to expand my role and continue my military career as an officer, I completed my BSN at the University of Pennsylvania and enjoyed an extended career providing patient care and educating soldiers in emergency medicine. However, after several years I wanted to take on the challenge of medical management and treatment and completed my MSN at the University of South Carolina and began a third career as a Nurse Practitioner.

Although the practice of medicine provided me the ability to diagnose and treat diseases, my nursing orientation gave me a keen awareness that treatment alone does not guarantee that the patient heals internally or returns to a state of health. This ultimately lead me to look into other forms of medicine. In addition to completing a certification program in Ayurvedic Medicine, I eventually completed a Masters degree in Acupuncture from Bastyr University and a Doctoral degree in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine from Oregon College of Oriental Medicine. As a result of merging these medical practices that combine treatment with healing, I find that not only is my personal satisfaction in clinical practice higher but most important that a majority of my patients heal, making them less dependent on treatment. This is why AIM institute was developed and hopefully the same outcomes will be achieved by graduates who have a desire to combine their knowledge of medicine with the tenants of healing found in Chinese Medicine and Nursing.

Frequently Asked Questions

When does the course start and finish?

The course starts January 2019 and annually for subsequent classes. The length of the course is 18 months

What is included in the course?

The course will consist of quarterly 3-day immersion weekends (Fri-Sun) from 8:00am to 5:00 pm conducted in Olympia, WA, with a focus on hands-on practicums and review of essential theories, diagnostics and practice management. Online presentations in between the immersions weekends will consist of a variety of online learning tools including video, lectures, forums and reading assignments. Online consultations by appointments will also be available to students throughout the program and after graduation.

What if I live out of state?

In November 2017, the State of Washington, Department of Health, Nursing Quality Assurance Board approved the inclusion of medical acupuncture for Nurse Practitioners with 300 hours training from an accredited program of study. If you are enrolling from another state, we advise you to check with your state board of nursing to ensure medical acupuncture is allowed and the criteria is the same. At this time AIM Institute is in the process of completing the accreditation process by the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) and we anticipate full accreditation by the start of the program.
