Using Reflective Practice to Understand LGBTQ Client Needs
ABSTRACT: Nurse practitioners as well as all nurses need to assess their values, be knowledgeable of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer issues and current guidelines of care, and communicate with clients and their families in such a way as to create trusting and safe environments, free from barriers for quality healthcare. Nursing literature supports reflective practice as a means of reducing bias, as well as improving patient–provider trust and quality care. Understanding the primary care needs of specific populations is necessary to fulfill the nursing code of ethics. (Source: Journal of Christian Nursing)

Overcoming Education Failures and Retakes: A Spiritual Process
ABSTRACT: The retention of students is a major challenge for nursing education programs. Although students who fail can often retake courses, negative internalities may occur. After a failure, students regularly present with emotional distress. A mental health practitioner, who is a nursing faculty member, is ideal to assist these students and offer support. The integration of spirituality as a coping mechanism for these students can serve as a protective factor. (Source: Journal of Christian Nursing)

Abstinence-Only Sex Education Fails African American Youth
ABSTRACT: Sexually transmitted infections (STIs) disproportionately affect U.S. African American (AA) youth. In AA faith communities, cultural practices have contributed to increased STI rates because abstinence-only-until-marriage education programs do not teach the use of condoms or birth control for preventing STIs or pregnancy. Comprehensive sex education or abstinence-plus programs have been reported to increase STI knowledge and reduce risk-taking behaviors in adolescents and young adults. Evidence supports computerized education to increase STI knowledge and decrease risky sexual behaviors of AA churchgoing youth. (...

Value and Meaning of Faith Community Nursing: Client and Nurse Perspectives
ABSTRACT: The literature that supports and describes faith community nursing (FCN) practice is extensive, but limited in describing the value and meaning of FCN to the community. A qualitative investigation of one FCN program led to emergence of five themes that illustrate the perceived importance of FCN to this community: tasks and services offered, nursing expertise, spirituality, familiarity, and community support. This exploration reveals the deeper value and meaning of FCN to the communities these nurses support. (Source: Journal of Christian Nursing)

Spiritual Nursing Care Education An Integrated Strategy for Teaching Students
Abstract: The failure of nursing schools to integrate spiritual nursing care education into the curriculum has contributed to a lack in nurses' spiritual care ability. Developing, integrating, and testing a Spiritual Care Nursing Education strategy in an Associates of Science nursing program significantly increased the perceived spiritual care competence of student nurses. Utilizing a faculty team to develop learning activities to address critical spiritual care attributes offers a method to integrate spiritual nursing care content throughout the curriculum in ASN and BSN programs.

Effective Listening: Five Lessons from the Best
ABSTRACT: For many nurses, especially when workloads are high, it can be difficult to listen carefully to patients. Federally mandated Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (HCAHPS) surveys that help determine insurance reimbursement are asking patients how carefully their nurses listened. For Christian nurses, effective listening demonstrates the compassion, understanding, and care modeled by Jesus. An exploration of Jesus' responses reveals five ways Christ effectively listened to people that can guide nurses. (Source: Journal of Christian Nursing)

Increasing Cervical Cancer Screening in Underserved Populations
This article updates on cervical cancer screening and prevention and discusses cultural impacts on screening. Knowledge deficits disproportionately affect ethnic minority groups and contribute to cancer incidence, whereas lack of healthcare coverage and low socioeconomic status contribute to screening disparities. Although minority women have cultural beliefs and practices that influence screening, recommendation and/or education from a provider often lead to screening. (Source: Journal of Christian Nursing)

ABSTRACT: Christian nurses are challenged by the process of incorporating faith and Christianity into their career.
