Editorial Reviews

Ada Romaine Davis
This book presents the philosophy, standards of holistic nursing practice, and the information necessary for students of holism to pass the American Holistic Nurses' Association certification examination. The foreword presents the history of the development of the AHNA in 1990 and its activities since then. Holistic nursing includes the biological, psychological, social, and spiritual realms of care and is adaptable to traditional nursing education as an additional aspect of care. This comprehensive textbook and reference was written to delineate the knowledge base for holistic nursing, particularly for those nurses who practice holistic nursing, and for others who may be interested in learning more about the philosophical basis and practice of holistic nursing. The book fulfills these purposes completely. The intended audience is nurses who wish to become certified as holistic nurses and for those wishing to learn more about the content, standards of practice, and applicability of holistic nursing. The book is divided into two sections. The first describes the discipline of holistic nursing practice: philosophy, foundation, ethics, nursing theories, research related to holistic nursing, and the holistic nursing process. The second part focuses on the caring and healing aspects of holism: meaning and wholeness, self-care, and health promotion. The primary basis of holistic nursing is the wellness model rather than the illness model, which is the basis for Western medical practice, also called allopathic medicine. The American Holistic Nurses' Association has been teaching and promulgating this method of practice for almost 20 years. Many nursing leaders find educators in collegesand universities include these concepts in classes or courses of the schools' curriculums to add breadth and scope to nursing care. This book superbly explains the concepts and how they can be applied in nursing practice to better care for patients with acute and chronic health problems and for people to better understand how to maintain their health. Highly recommended as a resource and textbook.
