Authors:
Mark Wilkinson

J Christ Nurs 2019 Apr/Jun;36(2):80-87

Mark Wilkinson, DNP, RN, is an assistant professor of nursing at Lubbock Christian University, Lubbock, Texas. He helped establish the Action Family Program and has researched how to impact the health challenges of food insecure populations.

An online survey was used to collect data from 445 nurses, assessing facets of religiosity, their opinions about introducing S/R during patient care, demographic, and work-related variables. Findings indicated that even in a sample of Christian nurses who scored high on religiousness measures, spiritual care is infrequent. Read More

Nurses' Perspectives on Spiritual Caregiving: Tending to the Sacred.

J Christ Nurs 2018 Dec 21. Epub 2018 Dec 21.

Kyla C. Janzen, MSN, RN, completed this research for her masters' thesis at Trinity Western University, Langley, British Columbia, Canada. She has been a research associate on several studies related to spiritual caregiving. Sheryl Reimer-Kirkham, PhD, RN, is director of the MSN program at Trinity Western University and teaches health policy. Her research focuses on social justice in health-related fields, including religious diversity, palliative care, and global health. Barbara Astle, PhD, RN, is associate professor of Nursing and director of the Centre of Equity and Global Engagement at Trinity Western University. Her research focuses on global health and equity, global health education, and research literacy.

This qualitative secondary analysis explored the narratives of 14 nurses from various practice settings. Data analysis identified that although nurses share responsibility for spiritual caregiving for their patients, the ability to provide this care is greatly influenced by the extrinsic factors. Spiritual caregiving was seen as both a discrete act that facilitated patients' spiritual practices and, in other situations, took the form of integrative spiritual caregiving that was part of the interpersonal connection in the nurse-patient relationship.

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.

Ready to Care? Student Nurse Perceptions of Spiritual Care Education.

J Christ Nurs 2019 Jan/Mar;36(1):E5-E10

Kimberly Brown, DNP, RN, is a professor at Liberty University School of Nursing in Lynchburg, Virginia. Her primary practice has been leadership and nursing administration.

Survey results showed a strong perception of readiness to provide spiritual care as graduate nurses. Read More
