  • The Call to Excellence—No Room for Complacency
    • Authors: Mosher; Ruth
      Abstract: image ABSTRACT: The call of the nurse is to promote, protect, and support health in all areas of life. Christian nurses are further called to imitate Jesus Christ. Yet, complacency is a common attitude among nurses. With new national standards of collecting and publicly reporting patient perceptions of care, positive nursing attitudes and excellent care are imperative to successful outcomes. What does it mean to seek professional excellence?

  • Practical Health Promotion: Weekly Health Tips for the Faith Community
    • Authors: Elwell; Joy
      Abstract: image ABSTRACT: Evidence supports that people with higher levels of health literacy report higher levels of wellness. Using the weekly worship service of the faith community as a way to distribute health information is an ideal way to promote congregational knowledge of health issues. This article discusses using the printed church bulletin and other weekly church communications to disseminate parish health tips (PHTs), provides resources for developing PHT, and offers 52 PHT's.

  • Using the Internet to Increase Physical Activity in a Faith Community
    • Authors: Washington; Enrika; Weed, Latricia Diane; Vardaman, Shellye A.
      Abstract: image ABSTRACT: Physical inactivity is the biggest public health problem of the 21st Century. Additionally, minority populations have higher rates of obesity and obesity-related illnesses, supporting the need to develop culturally-appropriate physical activity interventions for these populations. For African Americans (AAs), churches promote spiritual, mental, and physical well-being. The Internet offers an innovative medium to produce health behavior change and may be ideal to use with AAs in a church setting. A simple, no-cost, 8-week, Internet-delivered intervention to increase physical activity was piloted in an AA church. Level of activity increased, whereas time spent sitting decreased.

  • Service-Learning and Interprofessional Education in Nursing: A Critical
           Need
    • Authors: Furr; Susan B.; Lane, Susan H.; Serafica, Reimund C.; Hodge, Mary Alice
      Abstract: image ABSTRACT: Service-learning and interprofessional education can have an effect on nursing students' learning experiences, attitudes, transcultural knowledge, and on patient outcomes. Interprofessional education is a method in which healthcare students learn their different roles and responsibilities, and recognize how patients benefit from the collaborative process. The purpose of this paper is to review professional literature to determine the best practices for implementation of service-learning and interprofessional education into nursing curricula.

  • Defining Hope Among HIV-Positive African American Females
    • Authors: Kennedy; Toshua W.
      Abstract: image ABSTRACT: Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) affects heterosexual African American females (AAFs) with morbidity and mortality rates higher than females of any other race, accounting for the fourth largest number of HIV infections in the United States. Defining hope is important for understanding and therapeutic use of the concept in AAFs with HIV. A literature review exploring uses for this concept among HIV-positive AAFs, and a dimensional analysis, revealed positive and negative influences for hope. Truthful and positive messages need to be developed for this population.

  • Older African Americans' Beliefs about Pain, Biomedicine, and Spiritual
           Medicine
    • Authors: Booker; Staja Q.
      Abstract: image ABSTRACT: Persistent (chronic) pain prompts older African Americans (AAs) to utilize a combination of biomedicine (BM) and spiritual medicine (SM) for pain management. Because less is known about how older AAs use these pain management interventions, healthcare providers are unable to provide holistic care and optimal pain management. Using a Christian and Afrocentric perspective, this article reviews older AAs' use of BM and SM, offering recommendations on how to integrate BM and SM for pain management.

In this article, a nurse shares her philosophy of nursing, underlying beliefs, and discusses how this guides her practice. Questions to help nurses articulate their own personal philosophy of nursing are included.

  • Will the Real Nurse Please Stand Up' Improving Nursing's Image Through
           Faith-Learning Integration
    • Authors: Hargate; Carol
      Abstract: image ABSTRACT: Nursing and nursing's image have undergone dramatic changes throughout history, especially since the time of Florence Nightingale, begging the question: Who is the real nurse of today? Moving forward involves grasping a combined vision of the rich historical Christian roots in nursing and an enriched image of nurses as equal partners in practice, education, and policy making. Nurse educators can use faith-learning integration and interprofessional education, and promote collaborative practice to prepare students to influence nursing's future image.
