The purpose of this conference is to enable participants to integrate the historical foundations of holistic nursing into the creation of strategies designed to support the transformation of contemporary healthcare into a practice grounded in holism.

This conference will explore ways holistic nurses integrate the Core Values, caring, and the rich traditions of healing into modern health care.
