Meeting Spiritual Needs: A Study Using the Spiritual Care Competence Scale
ABSTRACT: Healthcare literature suggests that many nurses fail to address patients' spiritual needs and/or identify signs of spiritual distress. A study was conducted to explore whether nurses in a medical center possessed the knowledge to assess patients' spirituality and design and implement a plan of spiritual care. The Spiritual Care Competence Scale was used to assess competence in spiritual care assessment and implementation; professionalization and improving quality; personal support and patient counseling; referral; attitude toward patient spirituality; and communication of spiritual needs.

See Me, See My Child: Glimpses Into Autism Spectrum Disorder
ABSTRACT: Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is on the rise, with one in 68 children diagnosed with ASD. Families of children with ASD speak of being othered–feeling like outsiders in social situations. Because of ASD prevalence, all nurses need to understand current research, causes, symptoms, diagnosis, treatment, and how to offer effective support. Nurses within the faith community, especially parish/faith community nurses, can play a significant role in creating a welcoming and supportive environment for children with ASD and their families.

Will the Real Nurse Please Stand Up? Improving Nursing's Image Through Faith-Learning Integration
ABSTRACT: Nursing and nursing's image have undergone dramatic changes throughout history, especially since the time of Florence Nightingale, begging the question: Who is the real nurse of today? Moving forward involves grasping a combined vision of the rich historical Christian roots in nursing and an enriched image of nurses as equal partners in practice, education, and policy making. Nurse educators can use faith-learning integration and interprofessional education, and promote collaborative practice to prepare students to influence nursing's future image.

Using the Internet to Increase Physical Activity in a Faith Community
ABSTRACT: Physical inactivity is the biggest public health problem of the 21st Century. Additionally, minority populations have higher rates of obesity and obesity-related illnesses, supporting the need to develop culturally-appropriate physical activity interventions for these populations. For African Americans (AAs), churches promote spiritual, mental, and physical well-being. The Internet offers an innovative medium to produce health behavior change and may be ideal to use with AAs in a church setting. A simple, no-cost, 8-week, Internet-delivered intervention to increase physical activity was piloted in an AA church. L...

Service-Learning and Interprofessional Education in Nursing: A Critical Need
ABSTRACT: Service-learning and interprofessional education can have an effect on nursing students' learning experiences, attitudes, transcultural knowledge, and on patient outcomes. Interprofessional education is a method in which healthcare students learn their different roles and responsibilities, and recognize how patients benefit from the collaborative process. The purpose of this paper is to review professional literature to determine the best practices for implementation of service-learning and interprofessional education into nursing curricula.

Defining Hope Among HIV-Positive African American Females
ABSTRACT: Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) affects heterosexual African American females (AAFs) with morbidity and mortality rates higher than females of any other race, accounting for the fourth largest number of HIV infections in the United States. Defining hope is important for understanding and therapeutic use of the concept in AAFs with HIV. A literature review exploring uses for this concept among HIV-positive AAFs, and a dimensional analysis, revealed positive and negative influences for hope. Truthful and positive messages need to be developed for this population. (Source: Journal of Christian Nursing)

Older African Americans' Beliefs about Pain, Biomedicine, and Spiritual Medicine
ABSTRACT: Persistent (chronic) pain prompts older African Americans (AAs) to utilize a combination of biomedicine (BM) and spiritual medicine (SM) for pain management. Because less is known about how older AAs use these pain management interventions, healthcare providers are unable to provide holistic care and optimal pain management. Using a Christian and Afrocentric perspective, this article reviews older AAs' use of BM and SM, offering recommendations on how to integrate BM and SM for pain management.

A Christmas Miracle
ABSTRACT: Although lung transplants are miraculous, lifesaving options for terminally ill patients, the decision and lengthy wait for compatible organ(s) takes an enormous toil on the patient's family. This story concerns the multiple needs of a neonatal intensive care unit patient and her family awaiting lung transplant, as an organ finally becomes available during Christmas time. Her nurse's professional confidence and troubling doubts about her competence were gradually resolved with God's help when she called upon him. God's provision for the patient, family, and nurse were a Christmas miracle. (Source: Journal of Christian Nursing)
