The feature wasn't added until version 2.2
For version 2.2:
- Allow nano to work like a pager (read from stdin) [DONE]
and CentOS6 uses nano-2.0.9-7 (http://mirror.centos.org/centos/6/os/x86_64/Packages/)
If you decided you want the latest version, you can download from the upstream site (http://www.nano-editor.org/download.php) and then follow the Fedora guide to build your own RPM. (http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/How_to_create_an_RPM_package)
