Faith Community Nursing: An International Specialty Practice Changing the Understanding of Health

 Nursing  Comments Off on Faith Community Nursing: An International Specialty Practice Changing the Understanding of Health
May 292020
 

A multi-authored book, with editors and authors who are leaders in Faith Community Nursing (FCN) that aims to address contemporary issues in faith-based, whole person, community based health offering cost effective, accessible, patient centered care along the patient continuum while challenging contemporary health policy to include more health promotion services.
Twenty-five chapters take the reader from a foundational understanding of this historic grass-roots movement to the present day international specialty nursing practice. The book is structured into five sections that describe both the historical advancement of the Faith Community Nursing, its current implications and future challenges, taking into account the perspectives of the pastor, congregation, nurse, health care system and public health national and international organizations.

The benefits of this book are that it is intended for a mixed audience including lay, academic, medical professionals or health care executives. By changing the mindset of the reader to see the nurse as more than providing illness care, the faith community as more than a place one goes to on Sunday and health as more than physical, creative alternatives for promoting health emerge through Faith Community Nursing.

A Contemporary Nursing Process: The (Un)Bearable Weight of Knowing in Nursing

 Nursing  Comments Off on A Contemporary Nursing Process: The (Un)Bearable Weight of Knowing in Nursing
Apr 242020
 

“[This book] speaks against thinking [that] we can only understand nursing from a traditional, logical, empirical approach, suggesting we need a contemporary process for exploring nursing. I can’t agree more.” –Journal of Christian Nursing “Nurse scholars from across the globe contribute essays to this unique philosophical exploration of today’s nursing .This book presents an emerging view that requires nursing to look at its work through a broader and less structured lens. Challenging the structure of the traditional nursing process, the book considers nursing as reflective and thoughtful.” –Doody’s A Contemporary Nursing Process re-envisions the practice of nursing by configuring caring in terms of the person the nurse cares for. Locsin and Purnell stress the importance of knowing the patient, and differentiating the person from the disease. This text addresses this highly relevant issue, and provides a wealth of insight on how to care for the patient on a personal level, while still professionally administering clinical treatment. Chapters discuss: How to appreciate persons as participants in their care, rather than as objects of care The ideal of care versus the practical demands of care Technological advancements shaping human life and nursing The consequences of “not knowing” the patient on a personal level
