Integrative nursing embodies a whole person/whole systems approach to advancing the health and well-being of people, organizations, communities and the environment. It is based on a whole systems world view, an approach that recognizes that a change in any part of the systems causes a change in the whole system. Whole systems thinking and leadership draws from concepts and principles of complexity science, social networks, social change and gentle action. Whole systems leadership embodies competencies of deep listening, awareness of systems, awareness of self, seeking diverse perspectives, suspending certainty and embracing uncertainty, and taking adaptive action.
