NCF students and faculty on a weekend retreat in Michigan got a fresh look at what it means to "abide in the vine", as Jesus instructed his followers in John 15. NCF staff Renee Lick asked them to write nursing care plans based on this Biblical text.
How do you prepare for Easter? From March 9 to April 24, many followers of Jesus will participate in Lent, a time of spiritual reflection, renewal and sacrifice. Don't just give up something for Lent; take up something to focus on the person and mission of Jesus.
Nursing students, be encouraged by this word from the Lord: "May the favor of the Lord our God rest upon us; establish the work of our hands for us—yes, establish the work of our hands" (Psalm 90:17 NIV).
What letters do you have behind your name? It may be RN, ADN, MSN, BSN, PhD, CCRN or DE. Credentials help others identify our educational preparation, our accomplishments and our professional status. But they don't define who we really are.
In the midst of healthcare changes, we need a present help. This life is feeble and fragile. Anything can go wrong, oh so easily. As Christian nurses, our hope lies in Jesus Christ alone. He gives us hope for those we serve.
