We embrace holistic nursing as a lifestyle as well as a profession. Our organization provides a means to create bonds within the nursing community and with our friends in other health care fields. We welcome non-nursing integrative practitioners to our membership. Holistic nurses understand that true healing comes from within, and recognize that as health professionals, we must first heal ourselves. It is important to practice self-healing on an ongoing basis before we begin to tend to the healing of others. Because there are many roads to healing, we understand that we must seek our own path.
This organization serves as a bridge between the traditional medical paradigm and universal integrative healing practices.
