Holistic nurses, who commonly help treat patients with alternative medicine, treat all aspects of a person including the body, mind, emotions, relationships, and environment. A holistic nursing career involves clinical practice to fulfill physiological, psychological, and spiritual healing to the patient. It also includes conventional therapies. Holistic medicine is not always a replacement for traditional medicine, but in fact, it is often a complement to it. According to the American Holistic Nurses Association
, one of the most famous nurses of all time, Florence Nightingale, is considered to be one of the first holistic nurses.
