She has been a Registered Nurse (RN) for 30 years and a Nurse Practitioner (NP) for 20 years.

She uses both traditional allopathic and complementary, holistic care in her practice as a Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP).
Dr. Elwell, DNP and The Practice of Integrative Healing Arts
Listen in on this podcast as Dr. Joy Elwell, DNP, shares her experiences, talks about advanced holistic, integral nursing in today’s healthcare system and her autonomy in private practice.
“We also need to spend the time discussing lifestyle modifications – nutrition, smoking cessation, exercise, alcohol/drug use, stress reduction. Exploring the patient’s spirituality is essential, and is often ignored by practitioners. As a FNP, who practices and teaches student NPs, I promote the use of holism, holistic, and integrative healthcare every day.”
