Nursing is a healing art which goes all the way through the ages of enduring pain and has now emerged in integration and recursivity. All the theorists attempted to guide nursing practice in the light of theory and theory practice integration is not just a hard sell but a compassionate and empathetic caring and healing relationship. Nightingale stressed on clean environment which improves healing, Watson's Caritas stated that attainment of higher level of harmony potentiates healing, while Newman emphasized on the expanding consciousness of self-healing art. Among these integration approaches, the meta-theory of Complexity Integration Nursing Theory (CINT) provides a diverse and substantial platform for care. This is a review paper/commentary proposing a philosophy of nursing for nurses, extracted from one of the meta-theory of nursing (CINT) to guide and be incorporated in nursing practice. Keywords: Philosophy, nursing meta-theory, healing, CINT
