Holistic nursing is a philosophy and a model that integrates concepts of presence, healing and holism. Holistic medicine and holistic nursing aim at the improvement of healing of the individual as a bio-psycho-social unity, from birth until death. These concepts are based on broad academic principles that incorporate a sensitive balance between art and science, analytic and intuitive skills, and the interconnectedness of body, mind and spirit. The study is to explore what is found in the literature on nurses’ view on holistic nursing and also to describe the challenges nurses encounter in holistic nursing.
