This research guide will assist you in completing the assignments for your coursework. You will be exploring the foundations of ethical behavior as well as address how Christian faith molds nursing practice. Topics in the course will include theological interpretation of nursing practice, an exploration of the metaparadigm of nursing (nurses, persons, health and environment) from a Christian perspective, and how Christian faith shapes nursing values. In particular, teh core values of care and justice are explored as they pertain to nursing of persons in psychiatric-mental health, community, acute care, pediatric, women's health, and end-of-life settings. The holistic perspective is emphasized throughout the course through attention tot he body-mind-spirit whole of persons. In addition, respect and comfort in working with those whose perspectives (theological and otherwise) differ from ours is encouraged through exposure to Christian and secular readings. (DiRado)
