Collaboration Café: Advancing Holistic Health: Synthesis of Learning MSN-prepared nurses are uniquely positioned to lead holistic nursing care across a variety of healthcare delivery contexts. Reflect upon the learning that has occurred in Week Eight, and respond to the following: Describe a scenario involving an individual with complex health concerns. Include the physical, psychosocial, cultural, economic, educational, and environmental factors that influence the health status of the individual in the scenario.

Looking ahead, how will competency in advanced health assessment, pathophysiology, and pharmacology will be especially useful to your practice?
