Description:

This third edition presents insight into current problems, issues and challenges that occur when nursing is examined in its spiritual aspects. The author takes a problem-analysis approach to the spiritual challenges that graduate students and practicing nurses face with topics such as: What happens when the nurse and the patient are at different levels of spiritual development? Can nurses be expected to deliver spiritual care when it isn't a significant part of their curriculum? What care is appropriate for patients with a spiritual persuasion different than the nurse? What do recent brain studies teach us about spirituality? This edition discusses spirituality on a higher level of discourse than what is available in most nursing literature. It is not another cookbook or "how to." There is no attempt to give the nurse all the answers for what she or he should do, but instead the book reveals the underlying principles that might best lead to rational choices.
