  • Medical Futility and End-of-Life Care: Perspectives from Practice
    • Authors: McCroskey; Diane
      Abstract: image Abstract: Advances in technology and medical knowledge have dramatically altered our ability to sustain life in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU). Many things come into play for the nurse when establishing patient goals, respecting patient's wishes, and valuing spiritual and cultural beliefs in end-of-life care. A veteran ICU nurse shares the challenges of caring and how she copes when medical interventions seem futile.

  • Why a Faith Community Nurse Program? A Five-Finger Response
    • Authors: Ziebarth; Deborah Jean
      Abstract: image ABSTRACT: The value of a faith community nurse (FCN) program is difficult to communicate in a concise and effective manner to hospitals. It is important for FCNs and FCN Coordinators to have a well-rehearsed, value-added response to the question, “Why a Faith Community Nurse Program?” This article presents a concise, evidence-based response to this question and demonstrates the value of a hospital-supported FCN program in a five-finger response illustration. A concise “elevator speech” is an important strategy to provide a quick response in scheduled, intended, opportunistic, or spontaneous informal interactions in hospitals, and impact stakeholder perception of FCN program value.

  • Nursing on Empty: Compassion Fatigue Signs, Symptoms, and System
           Interventions
    • Authors: Harris; Chelsia; Griffin, Mary T. Quinn
      Abstract: image ABSTRACT: Few healthcare organizations acknowledge, discuss, or provide interventions for assisting with compassion fatigue. Yet, it is an important concept due to its individual, professional, and financial costs. This article defines compassion fatigue, differentiates it from burnout, and offers system interventions for supporting nurses and reducing compassion fatigue.

  • (Re)Claiming the Church's Role in Promoting Health: A Practical Framework
    • Authors: Chase-Ziolek; Mary
      Abstract: image ABSTRACT: The rapidly changing healthcare environment and burgeoning healthcare costs offer a unique opportunity for the church to reclaim her biblical and historic foundations for ministries of health, healing, and wholeness. This article proposes a framework for those foundations significant to church culture, considered in light of the challenges and opportunities created by the 2010 Affordable Care Act. Practical applications for health ministry based on the framework are provided.

  • Evaluating Theory from a Christian Perspective: Transformative Learning
           Theory
    • Authors: Adkins; Cherie S.
      Abstract: image ABSTRACT: Christian nurses need to carefully evaluate a given theory for fit with their worldview before embracing it for use in professional practice. Evaluation of Transformative Learning Theory, from a Christian nurse's perspective through a biblical lens, reveals how this theory complements truths found in Scripture, in particular Romans 12:2.

  • Nurses' Spiritual Care Practices: Becoming Less Religious?
    • Authors: Delgado; Cheryl
      Abstract: image ABSTRACT: Research indicates that nurses do not consistently provide spiritual care, feel ill equipped to do so, and there is a lack of information as to the type of spiritual care practices nurses use. This exploratory descriptive study surveyed nurses (N = 123) about their spiritual care practices and perceptions of effectiveness, followed by qualitative interviews with volunteers (n = 5) from the surveyed group. The nurses favored spiritual interventions that are not overtly religious, but conveyed concern and support, such as listening and providing comforting touch.

  • A Christmas Miracle
    • Authors: Sredl; Darlene R.
      Abstract: image ABSTRACT: Although lung transplants are miraculous, lifesaving options for terminally ill patients, the decision and lengthy wait for compatible organ(s) takes an enormous toil on the patient's family. This story concerns the multiple needs of a neonatal intensive care unit patient and her family awaiting lung transplant, as an organ finally becomes available during Christmas time. Her nurse's professional confidence and troubling doubts about her competence were gradually resolved with God's help when she called upon him. God's provision for the patient, family, and nurse were a Christmas miracle.
