The American Holistic Nurses Association is a nationally-recognized organization dedicated to helping Nurses become holistic healers, in and out of the healthcare setting. Holistic nurses treat the whole person, help to ease suffering, and facilitate healing.
Holistic nursing has been recognized by the American Nurses Association as a legitimate specialty. Nurses can become board certified through the American Holistic Nurses Association Credentialing Corporation.
Nurses involved in holistic healing may become skilled in many areas of complementary alternative medicine: meditation, yoga, reflexology, energy healing, guided imagery, healing touch, herbal medicines, health and wellness education, life coaching, stress management, research, writing, hypnosis, etc. The possibilities are endless!
