Holistic Nursing Programs Careers

Nurses across various healthcare settings are at the forefront of providing integrative care and empowering patients to use self-care and healing practices for healthier lifestyles. Skilled in holistic care and evidence-based practice, nurses are equipped to address their patients’ physical, mental, and spiritual needs to naturally restore balance among the human body’s multiple and complex systems. They are the valuable link between the conventional allopathic medical system and the alternative and integrative care system, guiding individuals and families on their way to receiving care and treatment.

Healthcare organizations are seeking nurses passionate about empowering patients, clients and families with the self-care practices necessary for living healthier lifestyle. The various illnesses, disorders, and anxieties caused by daily stresses are requiring care that addresses the interconnectedness of self, others, nature, and spirituality. Today, nurses are working on integrated, interdisciplinary health teams and collaborating with all constituencies to provide holistic healing. Graduates of the Pacific College online nursing program will have a competitive edge in an industry that is rapidly shifting toward holistic care practices.
