“This year, 2010, we celebrate the International Year of the Nurse to commemorate Florence Nightingale, the founder of modern nursing who died in 1910. We believe that Ms. Nightingale, an advocate of health, self-healing, and healthy environments, would be proud of the strides that nurses have made to promote holistic health and care around the world. In honor of the Year of the Nurse, the Editors of Holistic Nursing Practice (HNP) and Alternative Therapies in Health and Medicine (ATHM) have collaborated on their fall issues to highlight the cutting-edge contributions of nurses who work from holistic frameworks.”
This excerpt, from the editorial of Gloria F. Donnelly, PhD, RN, FAAN, Editor-in-Chief of HNP, will appear in the September issue. I’m excited to let you know that the fall issues of HNP and ATHM will be free online for 90 days! Upcoming feature articles include H1N1 Pandemics and Disease Mongering: Applying Holistic Philosophy to Counteract Fear and The Use of Complementary and Integrative Therapies in Mild to Moderate Depression.
I’ll be sure to let you know when the free issues are posted. In the meantime, three articles are available ahead of print. Feel free to peruse these articles and let us know what you think!
