The Nurse-Chaplain-Family Spiritual Care Triad: A Qualitative Study
ABSTRACT: This qualitative study utilized a phenomenological approach to better understand nurse, chaplain, and family member experiences with the delivery of spiritual services at the end of life in an inpatient intensive care unit. Triadic semistructured interviews (six with the patient's family members, six with nurses, and six with chaplains) were conducted. Family members perceived that the nurses' role was to care for the physical needs of their loved one, whereas chaplains were there to care for the emotional needs of those involved.

Confronting Incivility in the Online Classroom
ABSTRACT: Confronting incivility in the online classroom can significantly benefit from spiritual approaches that address behaviors on a continuum of mild to aggressive. This may include the need to intervene when covert or overt threats occur. Electronic communications can lead to misperceptions and misunderstandings between students and faculty. Lack of understanding of diverse cultures, life experiences, and professional and spiritual histories can lead to behaviors that are perceived as intentionally hostile when, in fact, they are not. It is important in the online classroom to differentiate between the two and esta...

Attitudes of Iranian Nurses Toward Spirituality and Spiritual Care
ABSTRACT: Spirituality and spiritual care play a crucial role in providing more effective treatment for patients. The purpose of this study was to determine nurses' attitudes toward spirituality and spiritual care in an educational hospital in Iran. A significant association was found between nurses' spirituality/spiritual care attitudes and age, education level, and type of hospital ward employment (noncritical vs. critical care). Nurses' scores on attitudes toward spirituality and spiritual care suggest the need for more education in this area. (Source: Journal of Christian Nursing)

Pregnancy Choices and the Role of Ultrasound Viewing
ABSTRACT: Limited research exists on the impact of ultrasound use in abortion or pregnancy clinic settings, to assist women in decision-making regarding their pregnancy. A retrospective chart review study was conducted at a pregnancy resource center to examine the impact of ultrasound viewing on a woman's decision to continue her pregnancy. During a 1-year period, intention to terminate pregnancy was reduced from 44 cases to 14 cases after viewing the ultrasound. Nursing implications include understanding the value of ultrasound viewing among pregnant women considering abortion. (Source: Journal of Christian Nursing)

Tattoos in Nursing: Do We Practice What We Preach?
ABSTRACT: Tattoos have become increasingly popular in the United States among the general population. Furthermore, the popularity of body art, primarily tattoos, among nursing students generates issues about professionalism in academics and in clinical settings. Nursing faculty are faced with conflicting views on cultural awareness, professionalism, and self-expression. With nursing viewed as one of the most trusted professions, the policy of covering tattoos should be discussed, and more research is necessary. (Source: Journal of Christian Nursing)
