  • “This second edition of Core Curriculum for Holistic Nursing is published at an exciting time because it parallels the implementation of national strategies to stop disease before it starts and to create a healthy and fit nation. [It] explores the complex nature of healing from many viewpoints and synthesizes holistic philosophy, theories, ethics, holistic caring process, holistic communication, healing environments, cultural diversity, holistic education and research and holistic nurse self-care. It blends both the art and the science of healing and spirituality and new, innovative, holistic ways of bringing balance and harmony into our chaotic times in health care and daily life.” – From the Foreword by Barbara Montgomery Dossey
