Core Curriculum for Holistic Nursing

Front Cover
Nurses are increasingly aware of the need to blend technology, mind, and spirit in creating optimal circumstances for healing. The American Holistic Nurses Association, with Barbara Dossey, a leader in the field, has created a core curriculum that will provide a blueprint for what it means to be a holistic nurse. This text will also serve as a major study guide for the Holistic Nursing Certification Exam currently in development. The AHNA Core Curriculum for Holistic Nursing will have broad appeal to nurses new to holistic concepts as well as those who are already experts. Winner of the AJN Book of the Year Award.
