Holistic Nursing as a specialty is grounded in the teachings of Florence Nightingale (1820-1910) who believed that nursing comprised more than the treatment of disease and/or symptoms.

The American Holistic Nurse’s Association (AHNA) defined holistic nursing as an “attitude, a philosophy, and a way of being”.

The Comprehensive Holistic Nurse & Coaching Certificate Program is designed to inform nurses of the attitudes, philosophies and theoretical underpinnings of Holistic Nursing (HN) practice and to the characteristics that define HN as a specialty practice.

Holistic Nurses recognize the interconnectedness of mind, body, spirit and environment; that whole-care is a manifestation of the complementary role that exists between science and art; and, that the nurse who holds space and acts as an instrument and/or facilitator of healing with others engages in practices that promote self-care and healing within.

Students will explore the concept of Holism as the ‘interconnectedness of mind-body-spirit and environment’ and will be introduced to holistic modalities intended to complement and/or enhance both personal health practices and nursing practice, particularly as it is under a Western Medical model.
