Holistic Nursing Practice (HNP), The Science of Health and Healing, is a peer-reviewed bimonthly journal that explores holistic models of nursing practice. Content emphasizes complementary traditional and holistic nursing and healthcare practices. Articles include theory-based interventions and their outcomes, including: innovations in holistic nursing practice; research related to holistic nursing practice, health care, and policy; and values and ethical-legal issues related to holistic nursing practices. The holistic approach is a worldview that emphasizes the potential for health and healing in human systems rather than on disease process and deficit.
