Health

Self assessing for well-being in each dimension of our lives is an essential practice for nurses who want to stay strong professionally and personally. 

As Christian nurses, we can respond best to the COVID 19 pandemic by acting on God’s truth, refusing fear, serving our faith communities, and modeling rest. 

While nurses focus intently on patients’ needs despite the hazards of care during COVID-19, observers are quietly cheering and appreciating nurses’ selfless sacrifices.

How does God transform us as nurses and followers of Jesus? For this nurse, it’s been via an unplanned, agonizing, and revealing journey.

Nurses care for others with compassion but we often don't take care of ourselves.

Working in a unit full of coronavirus patients induces stress mixed with thankfulness for a nurse in the thick of the pandemic.

WE’VE ALL BEEN EXPOSED

a poem by Sarah Bourns

We’ve all been exposed.
Not necessarily to the virus
(maybe…who even knows ).
We’ve all been exposed BY the virus.

Faith-based communities need nurses’ expertise and guidance about responding to the coronavirus outbreak.

Pain is inevitable; how we respond to it is our choice.
