After conducting a survey of AHNA members requesting presentations that connect research to practice, the Research Committee began offering a quarterly Journal Club. (For Members Only) The purpose of the Journal Club is to read, evaluate, and discuss research related to holistic practice. During each Journal Club presentation, Research articles from the Journal of Holistic Nursing will be discussed so that all members will have online access to the articles. Although there will be a presentation, the richness of the Journal Club comes from participants sharing experiences and strategies for proving holistic care.

Please read the article before the Journal Club meets!

To participate:
Shortly before the Journal Club is set to start, please call into (712) 775-7270 and use passcode 865545#
