Get Involved

Whether you're already member of the American Holistic Nurses Association or just an interested party; there are many ways you can benefit by getting involved with AHNA. If you haven't already, please join us!  By doing so, you'll be able to deepen your understanding of holistic self-care and healthcare research, education and practice, publish your research, share your education, practice and media expertise with AHNA’s membership and raise awareness through participating AHNA’s advocacy initiatives 

Non-Members

Even if you aren't a member of the American Holistic Nurses Association, there are still a number of ways you can get involved. Your every contribution helps spread the message of Florence Nightingale and Holistic Nursing. 

If you're curious about how to begin aiding our organization, try attending a local chapter meeting. There you can meet holistic nurses in person and learn about their needs and challenges.
