Provider: AHNA (American Holistic Nurses Association)
Descriptions: "Holistic nursing is a specialty practice that draws on nursing knowledge, theories, expertise and intuition to guide nurses in becoming therapeutic partners with people in their care. This practice recognizes the totality of the human being - the interconnectedness of body, mind, emotion, spirit, social/cultural, relationship, context, and environment." AHNA's site includes CME, accreditation and certification information; guidelines for research proposals and poster presentations; information on AHNA's annual conference; a small article library; and many more resources for those considering membership and entering the practice of holistic nursing.
