Background: A Nurse of strong mind, body, and spirit will deliver better patient care, resulting in better
outcomes, satisfaction scores & ultimately, reimbursements. The health and well-being of student nurses
is of at most importance when considering their inexperience in the field, the demands of the course and
profession, as well as the implications for patient care Because research proves that high levels of burnout
adversely affect patient outcomes & satisfaction.
Aim: To Check the level of holistic health & wellness among baccalaureate nursing students.
Design and Method: A mixed non-experimental & qualitative approach was adopted. 120 Baccalaureate
Nursing Students selected using Simple Random sampling. Holistic Health & Wellness survey tool was used
for data collection.

wellness, 55% had good level of holistic health and wellness, 9.2% had fair and 1.7% had below average.
ANOVA test for finding the difference in between the groups reveled that there is significant difference
between year of course at (p=0.003) level and no difference found with area of residence (p=0.681) and
gender (p=0.105). post hoc test done to find out exactly which intergroup differed one another and result
showed difference between first year & second year at (p=0.02) and first year & forth year (p=0.03).
Chi square test was found to be insignificant. Based on Focused group discussion two themes emerged,
which influenced the level of holistic health & wellness such as i) materialistic & environmental factors ii)
motivational determinants & barriers.
