Abstract

The following paper is a critical review of the e-book The Evolving Essence of the Science of Nursing: The Complexity Integration Nursing Theory (CINT). The CINT provides an opportunity for nurses and advanced practice nurses to gain insight into themselves and integrate nursing knowledge into practice. The critical book review analyzed the CINT thesis, development of the CINT theory, theoretical underpinning, contributions to practice, significance to academia, logic, and readability, as well as bias, influences, strengths, and weaknesses. A comparison made between the CINT and Jarrin’s (2007) integral philosophy and definition of nursing in the context of the advance practice nurse. The CINT offers a multifaceted, yet valuable understanding of nursing for nurses of all levels.
