More About Holistic Nursing

Holistic nursing is a contemporary term which defines nursing as “all practice that has healing the whole person as its goal” (American Holistic Nurses’ Association, 1998). Since the 17th century, professional nurses have demonstrated care that attends to the spiritual, mental, and emotional needs as well the physical body of the person. Throughout the 20th and 21st centuries, nursing research, education, and practice in developed nations has gradually become more integrated with the biomedical technologies involved in pharmaceutical drug development and use, diagnostic instrument improvement, and honing of surgical and medical therapeutic interventions. However, nursing practice and its scientific foundations stand on its own and when it does it is inherently holistic.

Holistic nursing is fundamentally a philosophical approach to practice and a way of being rather than something that a nurse does or a technique that is used in the care of clients. Holistic nursing care does not interfere with conventional medical care. It can be the perfect complement to any biomedical regime. Holistic nurses honor each person’s health beliefs, choices and experiences. The holistic nurse is committed to creating healing relationships with individuals, families and communities and then designs a plan of care that is an integrated blend of modalities and instruments of nursing care that draws upon the evolving traditional as well as the emerging technological. The holistic nurse collaborates with and guides the client, their supporters and other health care providers in the development of a fully integrated and individualized plan of care with attainable goals – a skill that is specific to professional nursing.

Since the 1980’s, holistic nursing has become a specialty practice within the field of professional nursing. Registered Nurses (RN’s – Bachelors and Associate Degrees) and Advanced Practice Nurses (APN’s such as nurse practitioners and clinical nurse specialists with Masters Degrees) can be examined to become board certified in holistic nursing after advanced study and periods of practice. Dr. Libster has been a member of the American Holistic Nurses’ Association since 1996. She is a Board Certified Advanced Practice Holistic Nurse and the Associate Editor of Botanical Medicine for the Journal of Holistic Nursing, the peer-reviewed publication of the Association indexed by the US National Library of Medicine.
