  • Increasing Cervical Cancer Screening in Underserved Populations
    • Authors: Dorsainvil; Merlyn A.
      Abstract: imageABSTRACT: The incidence of cervical cancer has declined dramatically due to Papanicolaou smear testing. However, some minority populations continue to suffer with high incidences and/or death rates of cervical cancer, due to lack of screening. This article updates on cervical cancer screening and prevention and discusses cultural impacts on screening. Knowledge deficits disproportionately affect ethnic minority groups and contribute to cancer incidence, whereas lack of healthcare coverage and low socioeconomic status contribute to screening disparities. Although minority women have cultural beliefs and practices that influence screening, recommendation and/or education from a provider often lead to screening.

  • Effective Listening: Five Lessons from the Best
    • Authors: Watson; Kittie W.
      Abstract: imageABSTRACT: For many nurses, especially when workloads are high, it can be difficult to listen carefully to patients. Federally mandated Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (HCAHPS) surveys that help determine insurance reimbursement are asking patients how carefully their nurses listened. For Christian nurses, effective listening demonstrates the compassion, understanding, and care modeled by Jesus. An exploration of Jesus' responses reveals five ways Christ effectively listened to people that can guide nurses.

  • Spiritual/Religious Beliefs & Medication Adherence in Black Women with
           Hypertension
    • Authors: Abel; Willie M.; Greer, Danice B.
      Abstract: imageABSTRACT: Black women have the highest rate of hypertension (HTN) in the U.S. and perhaps the world. Because they are deemed the most religiously devout group in the U.S., it is plausible that faithfulness to spiritual/religious practices may yield more adherence to HTN medication regimens. This study examined spiritual/religious beliefs in relation to antihypertensive medication adherence in Black women with HTN. Although results showed no association between beliefs and adherence, women who developed trusting relationships with their healthcare provider were more likely to be adherent to their medications.

  • Spiritual Nursing Care Education An Integrated Strategy for Teaching
           Students
    • Authors: White; Donna M.; Hand, Mikel
      Abstract: imageAbstract: The failure of nursing schools to integrate spiritual nursing care education into the curriculum has contributed to a lack in nurses' spiritual care ability. Developing, integrating, and testing a Spiritual Care Nursing Education strategy in an Associates of Science nursing program significantly increased the perceived spiritual care competence of student nurses. Utilizing a faculty team to develop learning activities to address critical spiritual care attributes offers a method to integrate spiritual nursing care content throughout the curriculum in ASN and BSN programs.

  • Clinical Nurse Specialist Perceptions' of Spiritual Care: Nurses Need
           Support, Care Falls Short
    • Authors: Saunders; Mitzi M.; Harris, Karen; Hale, Deborah L.
      Abstract: imageABSTRACT: The clinical nurse specialist (CNS) is positioned to influence spiritual care at three levels of practice: patient, nurse, and system. This study, the first to explore CNS spiritual care, reports on CNSs' perceptions in providing spiritual care. Four themes were extracted from interview data: 1) Providing direct spiritual support for patients, 2) Nurses need support in providing spiritual care, 3) Using existing resources, and 4) Spiritual care falls short. Not one CNS mentioned barriers to their direct provision of spiritual care. Results support that CNSs can improve spiritual care delivery.

  • Value and Meaning of Faith Community Nursing: Client and Nurse
           Perspectives
    • Authors: Mock; Gabrielle Sheridan
      Abstract: imageABSTRACT: The literature that supports and describes faith community nursing (FCN) practice is extensive, but limited in describing the value and meaning of FCN to the community. A qualitative investigation of one FCN program led to emergence of five themes that illustrate the perceived importance of FCN to this community: tasks and services offered, nursing expertise, spirituality, familiarity, and community support. This exploration reveals the deeper value and meaning of FCN to the communities these nurses support.

  • Spirituality As a Coping Mechanism for Individuals with Parkinson's
           Disease
    • Authors: Reynolds; Diane
      Abstract: imageABSTRACT: Parkinson's disease (PD) is a chronic neurodegenerative disease that can render individuals totally disabled. Spiritual practices can help mitigate stress and provide a source of strength in PD. This article demonstrates a gap that exists between PD and spiritual coping specific research; discusses existing spiritual coping research in chronic illness; and explores the use of spirituality in managing PD care. Healthcare providers need to provide holistic care and explore mechanisms to assist individuals to manage the demands of living with PD.

  • Building Cultural Competence: The Lived Experience of Semester Study
           Abroad Students
    • Authors: Cox; Lauren; Crump, Lauren; Struwing, Renee; Gillum, Deborah; Abraham, Sam
      Abstract: imageABSTRACT: College students who participate in semester abroad programs have diverse but positive experiences. Variables such as the educational institution attended by the students and the location of the study abroad can affect the experiences of the students. There is minimal research concerning students from Christian colleges who study abroad. The purpose of this study was to investigate the lived experiences of college students participating in a semester abroad program in a developing country. Seven college students were interviewed regarding their experiences by three senior nursing students who also participated in the study abroad program. Results indicated that major factors influencing students' experiences were related to cultural immersion, role relationships, challenges encountered, and personal growth. Students reported that relationships with people and faith in Christ were strengthened through the experience.

  • Abstinence-Only Sex Education Fails African American Youth
    • Authors: Breunig; Michelle
      Abstract: imageABSTRACT: Sexually transmitted infections (STIs) disproportionately affect U.S. African American (AA) youth. In AA faith communities, cultural practices have contributed to increased STI rates because abstinence-only-until-marriage education programs do not teach the use of condoms or birth control for preventing STIs or pregnancy. Comprehensive sex education or abstinence-plus programs have been reported to increase STI knowledge and reduce risk-taking behaviors in adolescents and young adults. Evidence supports computerized education to increase STI knowledge and decrease risky sexual behaviors of AA churchgoing youth.
