Journal of Christian Nursing

NCF at NSNAThank you for your prayers for the JCN and NCF outreach at the Lippincott booth April 6-10. I talked with hundreds of students (yes... hundreds!), distributed around 400 journals and gave away 400 flyers showcasing Journal of Christian Nursing and Nurses Christian Fellowship.

Kathy at NSNA 2011God was already working on the way to NSNA! My seatmate on the plane to Salt Lake City was a nursing student who was chosen to do a session at NSNA. What an honor for an undergraduate! She will talk about becoming the professional you want to be, including values and spirituality. She is a Christian and was excited to learn about NCF and JCN.

A close friend of Jesus had been dead four days when he asked Lazarus' sister, Martha, to open the tomb (see John 11). She knew the risks were great – along with the odor.

Pray this week for Kathy Schoonover-Shoffner, JCN editor, as she talks with nursing students and represents NCF and JCN April 6 – 10 at the 2011 National Student Nurses Association annual convention in Salt Lake City, UT. Ask God for conversations with students that will reflect his heart for healing and wholeness.

An event from my junior year pediatric rotation left a big impression. I observed nurses in the pediatric intensive care unit caring for a patient hospitalized due to a drug overdose. The patient was comatose and on a ventilator. One particular nurse sat at the nurse's station loudly discussing the patient's condition, adding her personal opinion that no additional efforts should be made to care for this patient because the state was paying for the care.
