Vocational discipleship

Nurses’ work may be often unrecognized by those we care for and their loved ones, but the aroma of their Christ-honoring care can create lasting memories. 

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.

A devotional outlining the mnemonic HOPE to help to support relationships.

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.

Praying before patient encounters invites God into the interaction, potentially impacting both patient and nurse.

Here’s what to pray when you don’t know what to say.

A nursing student chooses to take a risk and pray aloud for her fellow students. Was it worth it?

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.
