is holistic nursing for me?

  1. Hi..
    I graduated nursing school in December and I'm a lpn. I am looking for my first job and have had an opportunity come my way as a holistic nurse at a health and wellness center. I need some advice. I don't really know what a holistic nurse does aside from what I've read online. I know this center has MDs and NPs and they do not use pharmaceuticals. My goal is to work on the floor in a hospital after I complete my RN in 6 mos. Will future employers look at this holistic position as good experience or think I am not as qualified because I don't have much experience with drugs.

    Nope, nope, and nope. A clinic with listened medical professionals who refuse to use any pharmaceuticals is a big red flag. If you are looking into getting into acute care this will not only not help, but likely hurt, I'm the long run IMO. I would keep looking.
