Abstract

Faculty perspectives about holistic nursing education (HNE) were investigated in this descriptive study. All nurse faculty teaching in a religious-Affiliated university were invited to complete a researcher-developed survey; surveys were analyzed to identify themes related to respondents' definitions of HNE. Themes included teaching holistic nursing, seeing with holistic eyes, and using holistic pedagogy. Respondents' definitions of HNE were found to be consistent with professional standards and competencies. Respondents were nearly unanimous in describing the importance of educating students to see persons holistically, engage in reflection and self-care, and be knowledgeable about holistic nursing and complementary health approaches.
