Jo-Ann Blondin with her final transcript from CSNN
Today I picked up my transcripts at the Canadian School of Natural Nutrition and I PASSED. I am officially a Registered Holistic Nutritionist, RHN.
I achieved all of my goals – getting a final grade in the high 80s, achieving the required 50 hours of practicum but actually doing 192 hours, attending countless external practicums achieving the max allowed but really completing more than 200 hours, completing my Reiki Level 1 and Level 2, completing the 14 case studies plus 3 more, completing the courses with over a 90 average and passing the final board exam. Did I mention I am goal oriented.
So today I celebrated with a lunch at RawAura with some classmates (including amazing dessert) and tonight, I am watching season three of Downton Abbey with a tall glass of green juice.
Life is good.
Thank you to all of you for your support, kind thoughts and encouragement as I made this huge transition in my career. They say it takes a community to raise a child, well, it takes a community to change your life course. I truly am grateful to all of you.
Jo-Ann Blondin, your 9 Cup Challenge Holistic Nutritionist and wellness journey partner.
Jo-Ann, just looking through your blog again and I can’t believe I didn’t congratulate you on your graduation! I remember seeing the post when I was out and about and meant to do that when I got home … So now, almost six months later, you get to re-experience the excitement! I was so thrilled for you, not just for graduating but for doing so well. You are such an inspiration! I can hardly wait to see what you do next 🙂
Dear Jo, Sorry for not congratulating you earlier! But I did that in person! And I just love to give huge hugs in person where I can see your beautiful face light up! You are a inspiration to us all to eat cleaner, and healthier! Many hugs your BFF Heather
Heather, my BFF, I am so happy you did congratulate me in person and celebrated with me by creating meal that was 100% clean eating and 100% wheat- and dairy-free. I felt so loved and special.
