Why Consider Holistic Nursing?

  • Holistic nurses emphasize the care of the whole human, not only the care of disease.
  • Holistic nursing understands the human is an interactive system of physical, mental, emotional, social, spiritual, environmental and other factors.
  • A holistic model of nursing focuses on patterns and causes of illness not symptoms.
  • Holistic nursing views disease and suffering as opportunities for healing and growth.
  • Holistic nurses emphasize health promotion, prevention, self-awareness, self-exploration, self-care and self-responsibility.

Clinical hours lead toward certifications in hypnosis, Chinese Medicine, Reiki, Healing Touch, aromatherapy, herbology, guided imagery, acupressure or other healing modalities that interest the student. Clinical requirements can be completed in your own community.
