The new edition contains the 16 standards by which all RNs in holistic nursing are held accountable for their practice. The standards measurable by a set of specific competencies serve as evidence of minimal compliance with the standard. This must have book will be of value when learning how holistic nursing works, and why it is such a rapidly growing approach to wellness.

ANA represents the interest of the nation’s 3.1 million RNs. ANA partners with other nursing organizations to establish a formal process for recognition of specialty areas of nursing practice. This includes the criteria for approving the specialty itself and the scope statement and an acknowledgment by ANA of the standards of practice for that specialty. ANA’s approval of specialty nursing scope statements and its acknowledgement of specialty standards of practice remain valid for five years, starting from the publication date of the document.
