  • Entering Into Suffering: Becoming a Transformed and Transforming Healer
    • Authors: Gaudino; Rebecca; Braband, Barbara; Rogers, Anissa
      Abstract: imageABSTRACT: Learning how to respond to suffering is a significant challenge for healthcare providers. This interdisciplinary paper relays a Pedagogy of Suffering Model, based on research following a suffering interview project with undergraduate nursing students. The model is compared to the Gospel account of an encounter between Jesus and a Syrophoenician woman (Mark 7:24-30), supporting biblical and theological soundness of the model's transformative tasks for learning how to respond to suffering. The model can guide development of learning experiences that deepen understanding of compassionate interventions for those who suffer.

  • Natural Disasters: Planning for Psychological First Aid
    • Authors: Wynn; Stephanie T.
      Abstract: imageABSTRACT: Natural disasters leave survivors suffering physically, psychologically, and spiritually. An EF4 tornado on April 27, 2011, in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, known as April's Fury, raised the question of how mental health practitioners (MHPs) might respond to address psychological needs, rather than being exclusively assigned to offer physical support immediately following a disaster. This article proposes planning ahead for MHPs to provide psychological first aid (PFA) in the immediate aftermath of a catastrophe. Combating psychological issues early will hopefully help reduce the development of posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) or prolonged grief disorder (PGD) in survivors.

  • Resilience As a Life Practice: Lessons from Mother Seton
    • Authors: Leslie; Jamie L.; Wray, Janet N.; Lonneman, William
      Abstract: imageABSTRACT: One method for developing personal resilience is to listen to the stories of others who developed resilience. This article highlights the elements of spiritual practice, relationships, and education, as experienced by the first American saint, Elizabeth Ann Seton. Seton worked through immense suffering, demonstrating integration, adjustment, and growth. Her life story is an example of resilience as a practice that nurses can learn from today.

  • End-of-Life Nursing Care and Education: End-of-Life Nursing Education:
           Past and Present
    • Authors: D'Antonio; Jocelyn
      Abstract: imageABSTRACT: The dying experience is forever carried in the life story of those for whom the nurse cares. A goal of end-of-life nursing education is to produce nurses who are comfortable with death and dying and who have had the opportunity to reflect on their thoughts and feelings about end-of-life care. This article reviews the history, development, and teaching methods of end-of-life care, offering recommendations for future education.

  • Use of Simulation in End-of-Life Care Education
    • Authors: Grabow; Debra
      Abstract: imageABSTRACT: Death and dying encompasses the period when individuals present with a limited prognosis and are near death or have recently died. Using simulation to educate nurses on end-of-life (EOL) care helps focus more on the needs of the learner rather than the patient, and allows the learner to process feelings in preparation for a real experience. Incorporating simulation with a spiritual perspective is essential and needed in EOL nursing care.

  • The Pad Project: A Global Initiative Uniting Women
    • Authors: Raines; Michele; Garner, Shelby L.; Spies, Lori A.; Riley, Cheryl; Prater, Lyn S.
      Abstract: imageABSTRACT: The Pad Project is a women's health program used to educate women on their monthly menstrual cycles. Through this ministry, women who do not have access to menstrual hygiene products are given sustainable hygienic kits to promote menstrual health. This unique health education program also integrates stories from the gospel to illustrate Christ's love and caring commitment toward women and women's health.

  • Accelerated RN-to-BSN Service-Learning Program Serves the Vulnerable
    • Authors: Barnes; Margaret
      Abstract: imageABSTRACT: The definition, implementation, and benefits support the value of service-learning for nursing education. However, accelerated RN-to-BSN programs may have difficulty requiring service-learning experiences. This article offers a biblical rationale for service with vulnerable populations and an example of how service-learning is implemented into the curriculum of an accelerated, nontraditional, online/onsite RN-BSN completion program at a Christian university.

  • Respite Care for Families of Children with Disabilities: A
           University/Faith Community Model
    • Authors: Bigham; Amy; Cunningham, Jill; Johnston, Kristen
      Abstract: imageABSTRACT: Families of children with disabilities or special healthcare needs report respite care as a great need, yet availability of such care is scarce. A partnership developed between a nursing school in the Southeast and a faith community, to provide respite care and summer camps, resulted in a win-win situation for families, children, interprofessional students and educators, the faith community, and volunteers. This article explains the need for respite, how schools of nursing and faith communities can partner, and the benefits to all stakeholders.

  • Understanding Spiritual Care: The Faith-Hope-Love Model of Spiritual
           Wellness
    • Authors: Christman; Sharon K.; Mueller, Julia R.
      Abstract: imageABSTRACT: Spiritual care has been associated with positive patient outcomes. Although nurses want to provide spiritual care, many have difficulty conceptualizing spiritual care outside of religion and religious activities. The Faith-Hope-Love Model of Spiritual Wellness, a theoretical model of spirituality and spiritual well-being, grounded in Christian theology and biblical text, can help nurses provide spiritual support to patients and families from multiple faith traditions or those without a faith background. Spirituality concepts are discussed, and description of how spirituality is related to finding meaning and purpose in life along with a summary of the spiritual needs identified from healthcare literature and the Bible, are provided.

  • End of Life in a Haitian American, Faith-Based Community: Caring for
           Family and Communal Unity
    • Authors: Ladd; Susan Charlotte; Gordon, Shirley C.
      Abstract: imageABSTRACT: This article presents two models resulting from a grounded theory study of the end-of-life decision-making process for Haitian Americans. Successful access to this vulnerable population was achieved through the faith-based community. The first model describes this faith-based community of Haitian Americans. The second model describes the process used by families in this community who must make end-of-life healthcare decisions. Implications for nursing practice and caring science include a need to improve the congruence between the nursing care provided at this vulnerable time and the cultural values of a population.
