Nurses Lead National Effort

Certified Holistic Nurses Lead National Health Promotion Efforts

Nurses are doing great things for positive change in our health care system. 

Senator Tom Harkin has been a political leader dedicated to transforming the current disease-management model of healthcare to an inclusive model that promotes holistic health and wellness. He recently honored the American Holistic Nurses Credentialing Corporation (AHNCC) with the following recognition:

"Board Certified Holistic Nurses are part of Workforce 1 which means they are at the forefront of leading health promotion and fostering well-being for all populations, and they partner with others to transform the U.S. healthcare system to promote a true wellness society."
