Although professionally diverse, our members share a unified mission to advocate for holistic and integrative healthcare. Holistic nursing is unique in that it can be practiced alongside many other nursing specialties. Whether you are a med-surg nurse or a geriatric specialist, you can apply the basic principles of holism to almost any care setting. In addition to the various nursing specialties (e.g. oncology, pain management, pediatric and acute care, etc.), our members offer a variety of services including holistic education, research, nutrition counseling, and mind-body-spirit therapies.
