Greetings!  You will learn about Holistic Healthcare, Complementary and Alternative Modalities (CAM), providing Holistic Nursing, and self-care in this WebQuest.  

Did you know that Florence Nightingale is considered to be the first holistic nurse? Nursing has come full circle with the re-integration of holistic nursing in more recent years.

Before you start this WebQuest, here are some words of wisdom on taking care of yourself and others:

"A wise man ought to realize that health is his most valuable possession  ~Hippocrates

"The greatest medicine of all is to teach people how not to need it"
