Religion at the Bedside

Should nurses leave their personal beliefs in a locker when at work?

If you're currently working as a nurse you're invited to participate in a survey exploring how nurses provide spiritual care, their opinions on talking about religion with patients, and their personal religious practices. You don't have to be very religious to participate, just have some spiritual beliefs.

Nurses at Loma Linda University in collaboration with JCN are conducting this study.
