I've been an RN for over 2 years, focusing on med/surg units in a hospital setting. I am finally at my wits end and so tired of our healthcare culture where I spend my entire day handing out pills that usually don't "fix" the problem. While I do support some pharmaceutical treatments, the longer I am in nursing the more I know my calling is holistic nursing. After seeing proof that alternative medicine works, whether it be through chiropractic care, herbal supplements, or massage therapy, I have decided that I've had enough and I'm ready to do something that I truly believe in and support and as a patient who has repeatedly been left with no real answers, I am ready to turn my focus to a new style of healthcare. So where do I go now? Is it worth it to join the AHNA? Should I get a certification? What kinds of settings can I be used in as a holistic RN and how do I make a living from this? I'm ready for a career change but I need some guidance before taking the big leap of faith. Thanks for your advice and feel free to share your stories in holistic nursing. God bless!
