Overview-Important Definitions

Holistic Nursing: The American Holistic Nurses Association (AHNA & ANA 2013. p. 1) created the following definition in 1998; “all nursing practice that has healing the whole person as its goal….honors the interconnectedness of self, others, nature, and spirituality.”

Spirituality: The feelings thoughts, experiences, and behaviors that arise from a search for meaning. That which is generally considered sacred or holy. Usually though not universally, considered to involve a sense of connection with an absolute, imminent, or transcendent spiritual force, however named, as well as the conviction that meaning, value, direction, and purpose are valid aspects of the individual and universe. The essence of being and relatedness that permeates all life and is manifested in one’s knowing, doing and being. The interconnectedness with self, others, nature, and God/Life Force/Absolute/Transcendent. Not necessarily synonymous with religion (AHNA & ANA, 2013, p. 91) “Spiritual assessments not only glean religious beliefs and practices, but also query a person’s meaning and purpose in life and how that may have changed due to the present health experience” (AHNA & ANA p. 12).
