Co-published by the American Holistic Nurses Association and ANA, this new second edition contains up-to-date information on this growing specialty which reflects the diverse activities of holistic nursing and the evolving needs of patients seeking healing outside of traditional methods.
The publication addresses the expectations of all holistic registered nurses. It specifies the, who, what, where, when, why, and how of holistic nursing practice. The 16 standards are those by which all RNs in holistic nursing are held accountable for their practice. Each standard is measurable by a set of specific competencies that serve as evidence of minimal compliance with that standard. A selection of key AHNA documents supplements the main text.
Although primarily for holistic nursing practitioners, educators, students, and others directly involved in holistic nursing, research, advocacy, and certification, this book can also inform other healthcare providers, researchers and scholars as well as employers, insurers, lawyers, regulators, policy makers, and stakeholders.
