Nursing Students

NCF at NSNANSNA Update #2:

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.

"This can be a difficult time as new graduates take their licensure exams and start new positions," said Bonnie Hann, NCF Campus Liaison. "We want to help with this transition so they can have a positive influence as Christian nurses."

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.
