  • Faith, Hope, and Spirituality: Supporting Parents When Their Child Has a
           Life-Limiting Illness
    • Authors: Crisp; Cheryl L.
      Abstract: image ABSTRACT: When a child has a life-limiting illness, parents' goals and strategies for their child's life may need to be drastically altered, especially if early death looms. This article reviews literature and research about how families employ faith, hope, spirituality, and biblical perspectives as their child becomes critically ill and faces death. Suggestions are made for best caring practices for families and children encountering this difficult journey.

  • When Sorrow Never Stops
    • Authors: Buckley; Cindy J. Lightfoot; Stricklin, Suzanne Martin
      Abstract: image ABSTRACT: The death of a child, regardless of age, is the most horrendous, severe, and debilitating form of bereavement a parent can experience. Two authors—one who lost her son and one who has a son with intellectual limitations—explain how the Theory of Chronic Sorrow offers help in understanding the grieving process and how nurses can assist parents and others experiencing long-term bereavement.

  • Patient Storytelling in the Classroom: A Memorable Way to Teach Spiritual
           Care
    • Authors: Garner; Shelby L.
      Abstract: image ABSTRACT: Storytelling is an evidence-based teaching and learning strategy that engages students and promotes critical thinking. Although most nursing textbooks incorporate spiritual nursing care, the texts lack examples of how to tie evidence-based spiritual interventions to specific medical-surgical content. Stories told from the patient's perspective can communicate insights that nurses and students can use when planning spiritual care for patients. Stories shared by patients with undergraduate nursing students were effective in promoting learning and offered concrete examples of supportive spiritual resources for patients.

  • Religion and Care Intertwined: Nursing in Catholic Hospitals 1950-1965
    • Authors: Anthony; Maureen
      Abstract: image ABSTRACT: This qualitative study explores how Catholicism influenced nursing in Catholic hospitals and how nurses met the religious needs of Catholic patients in the 1950s and early 1960s. Six nurses were interviewed who graduated from Catholic schools of nursing between 1952 and 1965 and worked in Catholic hospitals. Results indicate that nursing care was inexorably entwined with meeting the religious needs of Catholic patients. Religious practices were predictable and largely linked to the Holy Sacraments.

  • Caring for the Vulnerable: An Exploration of Guatemalan Healthcare Issues
    • Authors: Johanson; Linda
      Abstract: image ABSTRACT: Knowledge of health practices and concerns is one key to providing culturally sensitive care to persons of different ethnicities. It is estimated that Guatemala is the third leading source of undocumented immigrants in the U.S. To increase understanding of Guatemalan healthcare issues, a descriptive study asked what are common healthcare issues among rural, indigenous Guatemalans and Guatemalan immigrants to the United States, and how do these issues compare?

  • You Are Not Alone: Parish Nurses Bridge Challenges for Family Caregivers
    • Authors: Grebeldinger; Teresa A.; Buckley, Kathleen M.
      Abstract: image ABSTRACT: In 2015, there were 43.5 million informal, unpaid caregivers in the United States. Caregivers reported a moderate to high level of burden of care, including performing medical and nursing tasks they were not trained to do. A study of family caregiver experiences with parish/faith community nurses reveals four key ways parish nurses support caregivers and offers important implications for parish nurse preparation and practice.

  • Are Faith Community Nurses Using the Scope and Standards of Practice'
    • Authors: Henderson; Dawn L.; Powers, Cynthia F.
      Abstract: image ABSTRACT: As the specialty of Faith Community Nursing (FCN) continues to grow, and certification through the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) has become a reality, there is a responsibility to demonstrate competency in the FCN role. One way competency can be demonstrated in the faith community is through the application of the Faith Community Nursing Scope and Standards of Practice. A quantitative, descriptive study of the self-reported frequency with which FCNs apply the Standards of Practice in providing care raises questions about FCNs' understanding of the Standards and related competencies.

  • India's Distorted Sex Ratio: Dire Consequences for Girls
    • Authors: Roberts; Lisa R.; Montgomery, Susanne B.
      Abstract: image ABSTRACT: Female gender discrimination related to cultural preference for males is a common global problem, especially in Asian countries. Numerous laws intended to prevent discrimination on the basis of gender have been passed in India, yet the distorted female-to-male sex ratio seems to show worsening tendencies. Using detailed, two-year longitudinal chart abstraction data about delivery records of a private mission hospital in rural India, we explored if hospital birth ratio data differed in comparison to regional data, and what demographic and contextual variables may have influenced these outcomes. Using quantitative chart abstraction and qualitative contextual data, study results showed the female-to-male ratio was lower than the reported state ratio at birth. In the context of India's patriarchal structure, with its strong son preference, women are under tremendous pressure or coerced to access community-based, sex-selective identification and female fetus abortion. Nurses may be key to turning the tide.
