Would I be able to open my own practice?

If I am a RN, doula, and certified in energy healing and lamaze..would I be able to open my own practice as long as I practice within my scope of practice? How many of you would come to a practice that offers doulas, energy healing, lamaze classes, health promotion, support, etc?

Just curious! Thank you :)

I *think* you can own it but maybe won't be able to do much. If you were a NP you'd have a better chance at being hands on.

Wouldn't energy healing mean you were practicing medicine? If so , then you'd need to hire a physician to oversee your practice

I'm not sure. I'm still looking into this energy healing thing. I am not all of these yet, this is just something I may possibly want to do. I am currently just working towards my BSN atm and I am a certified doula.

What? It is something that would be kind of in the far future.. I just thought about it and thought I'd ask what you guys think?

It all depends what the regulations are in your area.  You could open a practice for lamaze classes and doula services but you'd have to check on your local laws for energy healing.  I'm pretty sure it's not regulated in most places so there's no reason you couldn't.  Energy healing isn't considered medicine in most places.
