Life & Work

Vocational discipleship

Remembering an oncology nurse whose own cancer battle is now over is one way to celebrate the life and nursing ministry of a beloved friend.

From a weekly prayer group as a nursing student, a nurse/wife/mother launched into a lifetime of Bible teaching and birthing new believers in Jesus.

 

Permission to breathe, to celebrate, to grieve, to be present--sacred space is what God desires with each of us.

Gratitude is both a spiritual practice and a health-producing, research-supported mindset, even—especially—when life is dry and hard.

Knowing intellectually that God is a strong place of security is not the same as confidently acting on that fact.

In spite of a year of hurdles, obstacles, and distancing, student nurses are finding Jesus when they need him most.

How can a nurse frame his or her work stress to good effect? One evidence-based option is considering one’s work as sacred.

Whatever our nursing roles, connecting with and engaging our communities is essential and valuable.

Professional development is a continual process for nurses, and mentoring is a means for novice and experienced nurses to grow professionally and spiritually.

This excerpt of the newly revised book, Called to Care: A Christian Vision for Nursing, 3rd. ed., is from the first chapter, under the section Nursing Today.
