The Standards of Holistic Nursing have five Core Values of practice: 1) Holistic Philosophy and Education; 2) Holistic Ethics, Theories, and Research; 3) Holistic Nurse Self-Care; 4) Holistic Communication, Therapeutic Environment and Cultural Competence; and 5) Holistic Caring Process.
- Review the core values of holistic nursing and determine which one you personally rank as the most important. Explore this core value further on the Web and state your rationale of why you see this value as being important for a holistic nurse to incorporate into his or her practice.
- Interview 3 people (family, friends, coworkers). Explain the selected core value to them in your own words. Then, ask them if they think that this would be an important aspect for a nurse to incorporate into his or her practice and have them explain to you why or why not.
