Nursing as Ministry provides the foundations of Christian nursing as ministry, taking an interprofessional perspective with nearly 30 contributors from backgrounds in theology, nursing, biology, and pastoral ministry. Designed to be a student-friendly textbook for faith-based schools, this first edition text focuses on the spiritual aspects of patient care, providing practical information ministering to specific populations. The reader is guided through topics such as homelessness, substance abuse, community health, vulnerable elders, prison ministry, culturally sensitive care, and more. Additionally, the text is designed to guide the reader through their personal spiritual journey, with personal reflection questions in each chapter to help students and nurses to help personalize the content.
With a need for a contemporary, evidence-based text on nursing ministry, this first edition offers an abundance of resources including critical thinking exercises, interviews with nurse leaders, case studies, suggestions for faith integration in daily nursing care, and more.
