ABSTRACT: Healthcare today is challenged to provide care that goes beyond the medical model of meeting physical needs. Despite a strong historical foundation in spiritual whole person care, nurses struggle with holistic caring. We propose that for the Christian nurse, holistic nursing can be described as Spirit-guided care—removing oneself as the motivating force and allowing Christ, in the form of the Holy Spirit, to flow through and guide the nurse in care of patients and families.
