Doctorally prepared nurses must be able to represent the unique nursing perspective within interdisciplinary teams to address contemporary health challenges. This article provides a student exemplar applying the unifying focus of facilitating humanization as described by Willis, Grace, and Roy to science on nature and health. As scientific knowledge becomes more complex, nurses must be skilled in translating information through the nursing lens to support individuals in realizing meaning, choice, quality of life, and healing in living and dying. In order for doctoral students to shepherd the discipline, they must first integrate nursing's philosophical underpinnings into their practice.
