Holistic nursing

Holistic nursing is a nursing speciality concerned with the integration of a person's mind, body, and spirit with their environment.[1] The speciality has a theoretical basis in a few grand nursing theories, most notably the science of unitary human beings as published by Martha E. Rogers in An Introduction to the Theoretical Basis of Nursing,[2][3][4] and the mid-range theory Empowered Holistic Nursing Education as published by Dr. Katie Love.[5]
