Welcome to the Canadian Holistic Nurses Association official website.
CHNA envisions Holistic Nursing as a recognized nursing specialty with the Canadian Nurses Association. We invite you to read the Standards of Practice for Holistic Nursing that CHNA upholds and teaches.
Ultimately, our intention is to ensure and continue to achieve ‘…holistic health, self-responsibility, and a philosophy of holistic nursing including the following three characteristics: self-care, humanizing health care, and promoting wellness’ (Dobbie, 2007), as was intended by the founders of the Organization and their vision for health care in Canada.
CHNA offers an intensive Specialization Program through which you will learn how to practice holistic nursing within the Standards of Practice we uphold.
