Product Description

Can nursing be Christian? The answer may seem obvious. Yet in our pluralistic society, Christian nurses are often told to keep their values out of their work. In fact, Judith Shelly and Arlene Miller ask, can anyone nurse without being guided by some values? Or do advocates of "value-free" nursing actually smuggle in their own, non-religious values? In response to such pressures, many Christian nurses adopt attitudes that don't really fit with their faith. For instance, are "rugged individualism" and " the right to privacy" deeply Christian virtues? Shelly and Miller challenge believing nurses not to forget Christian values, but to understand and apply those beliefs. Only then can they adopt a true "discipleship strategy" and more ably practice both their faith and their profession. 215 pages.

Publisher's Description

Can nursing be Christian? The answer may seem obvious, yet in our pluralistic society, Christian nurses are often told to keep their values out of their work. In fact, Judith Shelly and Arlene Miller ask, can anyone nurse without being guided by some values? Or do advocates of "value-free" nursing actually struggle in their own, non-religious values? In response to such pressures, many Christian nurses adopt attitudes that don't really fit their faith. For instance, are "rugged individualism" and "the right to privacy" deeply Christian values? Shelly and Miller challenge believing nurses not to forget Christian values, but to better understand and apply those beliefs. Only then can they adopt a true "discipleship strategy" and more ably practice both their faith and their profession. This straightforward, practical book will immensely help and encourage Christians involved in the troubled (and troubling) contemporary profession that is nursing.

    The Christian values are fading fast in nursing! This book is an encouragement to any nurse who would like to keep her/his faith at the center of their practice. Christian nurses need more resources like this one.
