Integrative nursing is a way of being-knowing-doing that advances the health and well-being of persons, families, and communities through caring/healing relationships. Six principles of integrative nursing are described: Human beings are inseparable from their environments; human beings have the innate capacity for health and well-being; nature has healing and restorative properties that contribute to health and well-being; integrative nursing is person-centered and relationship-based; integrative nursing practice is informed by evidence and uses the full range of therapeutic modalities to support/augment the healing process, moving from least intensive/invasive to more, depending on need and context; and integrative nursing focuses on the health and well-being of caregivers as well as those they serve.
