Nursing...Focused on Tasks or People?

McCarver, Pamala K.

Collapse Box


Through being a patient, this nurse experienced healthcare professionals can be limited regarding the deeper issues within a patient's soul. Nurses cannot give what they do not have; but responding to personal spiritual needs equips nurses to meet patients' soul needs. The biblical account of sisters Mary and Martha (Luke 10:38–42) provides insight on the importance of Christian discipleship and diligent work, suggesting Christian nurses may need to be like Mary—sitting at Jesus' feet, and Martha—working for Christ.
