I have a few questions to put out. I am not yet an R.N., but have just started to look into the field. I'd like to know what "holistic nursing is?" I have heard this term used in different ways. A friend of mine who is attending a nursing school
in arcata california said her program offers a certificate in holistic nursing, but this program offers not alternative medicine courses. Is this actaul a specialization? can you get a job with this title?
For now I am going to assume the question is no and that it was just used for this websight to give interests in alternative medicine a place to go.
The american public has shown remarkable increase in usage of alternative medicine during what- the last ten years? Well, despite this it seems that allopathic medicine is still pretty closed off to the idea? would you guys agree? have any of you experienced alternative therapies being used at your work? for those in school do any of your classes address the topic?
