Why is it important?

Academically performing students (those with a GPA of B and above) are more resilient. In addition, there is an existing linear relationship between high mental well-being and the ability to pursue higher academic loads.


The nursing students’ understanding of the connection between mind and body, resilience, and well-being will enable them to champion the use of holistic treatment options in their future careers as professional nurses. Additionally, they will become more sensitive to the use of techniques and strategies that allow the use of a holistic approach in the continuum of nursing care from assessment to nursing diagnosis to the provision of holistic nursing intervention. The Holistic Clinical Assessment (HCAT) is a research tool that allows clinical nurse instructors and educators to assess their students’ competence in conducting a holistic approach to patient assessment, thereby creating feedback on the holistic needs of their patients.
