  Background and Aim: Philosophy of Gilles Deleuze is one of the most important and influential philosophies in the 20th century. Aim of this article is to discuss about rhizomatic thought in nursing. This is second of two papers, explaining development and application of rhizomatic though in nursing.

  Materials and Method: A literature search was conducted using CINAHL, Proquest, PsychINFO, Social Sciences Index, Sciencedirect, scopus, and MEDLINE databases and the keywords " rhisom" and "nursing". Articles from each of these databases were examined to identify major themes, areas of agreement and disagreement across disciplines.

  Results: Both concurrent and opponents of rhizomy in nursing agree with the arguments againts “the knowledge/culture wars” that seem to dominate attempts to develop the discipline. They also agree with the notion of “borrowing” approaches from the diversity of elsewhere is somehow wrong and will weaken nursing is utter rubbish.

  Conclusion: Rhizomatic thought in nursing needs more discussion.
