Holistic Nurses Feature NIGH’s
‘Daring, Caring & Sharing’ Global Campaign

“…called to think globally and to contribute to the
improvement of all communities. Often the front lines of
caring are beyond our physical reach, yet we can still
make a difference by supporting global health both
energetically and by raising our public voices.”

The American Holistic Nurses Association (AHNA) has recently highlighted NIGH’s global maternal health awareness campaign — Daring, Caring & Sharing to Save Mothers’ Lives — in AHNA’s Membership Magazine Beginnings. With the story of continuing high rates of maternal death worldwide — one woman or girl still dies once every two mintues — most people (even nurses) do not know that these tragedies still occur at such an alarming rate. With traditional media neglecting this crucial story, it follows that newer forms of media, such as social media, can be tapped to finally tell this story far and wide.

This feature article was co-authored by NIGH’s International Co-Directors, Deva-Marie Beck, PhD, RN and Barbara Dossey, PhD, RN, AHN-BC, FAAN, HWNC-BC, one of the founding ‘Mothers’ of AHNA and the 1985 Holistic Nurse of the Year.

Today, with over 5,400 members, AHNA serves as the definitive voice for Holistic Nursing. AHNA’s Vision is a ”world in which nursing nurtures wholeness and inspires peace and healing.”
