Nursing Students

by Tara Trester

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.

NCF staff Skip McDonald and Renee Lick welcome students starting a new semester of nursing school. They offer suggestions for staying refreshed in body, mind and spirit while in school.

Renee LickNurses have an amazing opportunity to take part in God's healing in the world! Yet many nursing students lack this vision because they do not yet know Jesus or understand His abundant love for them.

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).
