  • As a student, you are the backbone of the future of healthcare. What do you want to bring with you to the field? Wellness? Caring? Wisdom? Mind Body Spirit Holism?
  • Student members of the AHNA practice the philosophy that holism begins with the nurse. Nurturing oneself is key to encouraging others to nurture themselves. It is a cycle that can bring the nursing crisis to a halt by validating the important role of the nurse as a powerful force in healthcare.
  • Student nurse members of the AHNA learn how to bring the philosophy of holism to the classroom, to the future of nursing education and finally to the way nursing is practiced in each healthcare setting.
  • Throughout AHNA publications, holistic nurses from all over the country show how they individualize the practice of holistic nursing in their unique workplace setting.

What can AHNA do for my Career?

People seek the credibility of an RN license with the compassion of holistic philosophy. There is a need for holistic nurse specialists in hospital settings; often they are invited to plan complementary programs and services for patients and staff. There is also a need for holistic nurse practitioners in private practice.
