Holistic Nursing Scope of Practice

Holistic Nursing is defined as “all nursing practice that has healing the whole person as its goal” (American Holistic Nurse Association, 1998). Holistic Nursing is a specialty practice that draws on nursing knowledge, theories, expertise and intuition to guide nurses in becoming therapeutic partners within their care.

Holistic nurses may integrate complementary/alternative modalities (CAM) into clinical practice to treat physiological, psychological, and spiritual needs. Doing so does not negate the validity of conventional medical therapies, but serves to complement, broaden, and enrich the scope of nursing practice and to help individuals access their greatest healing potential.

The practice of holistic nursing requires nurses to integrate self-care, self-responsibility, spirituality and reflection in their lives.

Holistic nursing is not necessarily something that you do; it is an attitude, a philosophy and a way of being --- Holistic Nursing: Scope and Standards of Practice 2007
