Offering Culturally Congruent Christian Care
ABSTRACT: Nurses provide care for people of many cultures. Understanding the patient's culture and incorporating cultural beliefs and practices into care are important to the patient's holistic well-being. Cultural and professional awareness creates culturally congruent care. Biblical teachings remind us to love one another; laws require culturally appropriate care, and nursing theory lays the path for understanding. The purpose of this article is to present a Christian view of caring, the theoretical and ethical underpinnings of cultural care, and the organizational and legal aspects of doing what is right.

Complementary Medicine & Spirituality: Health-Seeking Behaviors of Indian Immigrants in the United States
ABSTRACT: Over 3 million India-born immigrants live in the United States, yet their health-seeking behaviors are little understood. Information on health and access to care was collected from 20 adult Indian immigrants living in the United States. Participants preferred complementary and alternative medicine home remedies to address their health needs, although they accessed health services more quickly for their children. They also reported barriers in using insurance and accessing healthcare. (Source: Journal of Christian Nursing)

Forgiveness and Spiritual Distress: Implications for Nursing
ABSTRACT: Spirituality, spiritual distress, and forgiveness are constructs relevant to nursing diagnoses and care planning. Forgiveness has significant implications, as it contributes to the spirituality of the individual and has been linked to positive and negative health outcomes. In clinical practice, forgiveness facilitation, grief work facilitation, and spiritual growth facilitation are evidence-based nursing interventions to address Spiritual Distress. Need exists to enhance spiritual distress and forgiveness within nursing curricula, patient assessment, and research designs. (Source: Journal of Christian Nursing)

Ethics Committees: Team Perspectives and Organizational Responses
ABSTRACT: Healthcare ethics committees can be valuable resources but are largely underutilized by nurses. The purpose of this project was to review ethics concerns and educational needs of nurses in a large, integrated healthcare delivery system. Seven themes were identified: organizational issues, nonbeneficial care, withdrawing life-sustaining therapies, discharge disposition, challenging patients and families, communication with physicians, and capacity versus competence. A process was then developed to better engage nurses in ethical discussions. (Source: Journal of Christian Nursing)

A Theology of Neediness and Evangelism
ABSTRACT: Twentieth century theologian Karl Barth viewed human beings as more needy than any other part of creation. Human neediness leads one into relationship with God or into independence, away from God. Barth understood evangelism as speaking out of one's own deeply felt neediness to another also in need, attesting to what one has come to know of God in his/her own life. His perspective is helpful to nurses wanting to bear witness of God's work in their lives. (Source: Journal of Christian Nursing)

Life, God, and Help: Resources for Women Who Are Working and Poor
ABSTRACT: Women who work, yet remain poor and uninsured, struggle to live with limited resources. This phenomenological study interviewed 57 such women, hearing how they turned to God or other help to accomplish the major theme of life, with additional themes of God and help. Findings can guide nurses caring for these women to validate the importance of nonmonetary resources and assist in obtaining essential community resources to meet their needs.

Conquering the Craving: Treatment to Curb Alcohol Use Disorder
ABSTRACT: Largely underutilized in North America, the use of medications to treat alcohol dependence is frequently a successful method of reducing alcohol craving and promoting abstinence. Recovery from alcohol addiction can be a complicated process, requiring nutritional, social, psychological, spiritual, and physical aspects of healing and self-directed behavioral change. Nurses can intervene in alcohol use disorder via screening, referrals, support of medical and behavioral treatments, and spiritual care that emphasizes hope, forgiveness, and relief from shame and guilt.

Fostering Cultural Competence in Nursing Students Through International Service Immersion Experiences
ABSTRACT: Using an ethnographical case study method, faculty members examined senior nursing students' experiences and learning during a cultural immersion service-learning trip in Haiti. Pediatric care was emphasized, as well as cultural awareness and competency. Following thematic analysis, students' guided reflections revealed common themes: knowledge and skills, culture, healthcare, and challenges and opportunities. Students also reported improved cultural understanding and self-perception. (Source: Journal of Christian Nursing)

Six Principles for Remaining Positive in a Negative Work Environment
ABSTRACT: Nurses employed in a caustic work environment can find their ability to give quality patient care impeded. Situations in which there is incivility, high stress, jealousy, or harassment, exemplify work environments that can be discouraging, especially for Christian nurses who may have pursued the profession in response to a spiritual calling. There are biblical passages that nurses may use to help them cope, including six focus points to guide and encourage nurses in caustic work situations. (Source: Journal of Christian Nursing)

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...

This pilot project examined the effect of a faith community nurse (FCN) educational intervention based on the CREATION Health Model, on depression in older homebound adults. Results showed a downward trend in depression scores on the Geriatric Depression Scale: Short Form, suggesting that FCN interventions and the CREATION Health Model may be helpful for decreasing depression in this group.

Comforting Comes Full Circle
ABSTRACT: Nurses' personal grief and loss experiences can enhance their ability to comfort family members of seriously ill and dying patients. Spiritual care in these situations can include empathy, listening, and sharing of Scripture, when appropriate.

Combating Food Insecurity: Addressing Health Beyond an Empty Pantry
ABSTRACT: Individuals and food-insecure households who rely on food banks have a higher likelihood of chronic health conditions. A study of the Action Family Program at a faith-based community center demonstrated how nurses can impact food bank recipients' health measures through health promotion interventions. Providing healthier food options with the weekly food distribution box, cooking demonstrations, health screenings, and health education resulted in reduced weight, and decreased systolic and diastolic blood pressure measurements.
