Integrative nursing is based on a set of principles

This preview shows page 2 - 3 out of 3 pages.

Integrative nursing is “based on a set of principles that are consistent and aligned with major nursing theories, provides practical and unambiguous guidance that can both shape and direct the care of patient populations across clinical settings” (Kreitzer, 2015, p. 2). By taking the knowledge we have, the clinical skills we obtained and having the ability to apply these things together gives us the integrative abilities to diagnose, treat and prescribe based on the whole picture, not just the symptoms. Having integrative abilities, putting the pieces of the puzzle together, thinking outside the box, and looking at the patient as a whole allows us to provide and deliver the finest patient care and provide the best outcomes to our patients.
