Donna Karan's Urban Zen Foundation comes to Kent College Of Nursing
Designer's foundation focuses on self-care for better health care.

The Kent State College of Nursing is touting a partnership that teaches students that caring for themselves first will make them better nurses.

Kent State has been partnering with American fashion designer Donna Karan’s Urban Zen foundation since 2010.  

Karan visited the campus today (Monday) to talk about how simple self-care is important for students before they become nurses.

“if you get to brushing your teeth every morning, or instead of drinking coffee drink juice…and a simple thing called breath-work. If this is started in the educational system at the primary school level, we wouldn’t have some of the problems we have today.”

‘you know we’re really teaching them how to be mindful…of  themselves, in their posture in their breath, in what they’re doing… Yoga therapy, Aromatherapy, Reiki, Nutrition, and Contemplative care.  Those are the five modalities we are using not only for self-care but for patient care. “

Donna Karan says when her husband was ill with lung cancer, the doctors cared for his cancer, but not for him – that’s why she’s made her life’s work today more than just fashion.
