Nurses that practice holistic nursing establish relationships with their patients in order to promote healing and wellness. Holistic nursing is based on the notion that a patient's biological, social, psychological, and spiritual well-being are all intertwined. Holistic nurses are legally licensed nurses who acknowledge and care for the person within the scope and standards of their state and the Holistic Nursing specialization. Holistic nurses promote wholeness, peace, and healing by respecting and valuing each person's physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, and environmental strengths and problems, as well as their values, health beliefs, and medical history. During the nurse's assessment, planning, diagnosis, intervention, and evaluation of the results, the entire person's condition is considered.
