Holistic Nurses

Holistic nursing is a specialty practice that deals with healing the whole person. Its practitioners use all their knowledge, theories, expertise and intuition to become therapeutic partners for the patients they care for. The philosophy is that the whole human being is interconnected in body, mind, emotion, and spirit. All patients are understood to be expressing themselves in the context of their social and cultural mores as well as in their relationships to others and to their environment. Because there are only a limited number of holistic nurses, we list them by state below.

Holistic nursing approaches

Holistic nursing believes in listening carefully to the patient as an important agent in his/her own healing. Holistic nurses help the healing process as they respect patients' individual experiences in regard to their health, especially what they believe in and value.

Holistic nursing approaches generally tap both complementary treatments and alternative treatments to help patients with physical, psychological, and spiritual needs. They focus on working with medicine's traditional treatments to give patients the best possible opportunities to experience healing and peace.

Holistic nursing approaches emphasize personal responsibility and self-care. They encourage patients to feel a spiritual connection and take time to reflect on their lives.

Holistic healing

Nurses who practice holistic healing are like traditional nursing in their respect for medical options. But the practice goes beyond that to a philosophical attitude about how people are in general.
