Synopsis

"

Faith community nursing integrates traditional nursing care with the spiritual and emotional needs of individuals as they strive to achieve wellness. This easy-to-use resource for busy nurses provides succinct, clinically based coverage of the faith community nursing practice. It is based on the American Nursing Association's (ANA) Scope and Standards for Practice of Faith Community Nursing, and presents the core concepts for establishing, maintaining, and evaluating a nursing practice within a community of faith.

The book explains how to assess a faith community and design, implement, and evaluate nursing programs that meet the needs of its different populations across the life span. It explores various faith community nursing models along with their legal and ethical considerations, and the different roles available for faith community nurses. Meeting special needs within faith communities (acute care, chronic care, palliative care, grief, and loss) is addressed, as is serving its wide variety of vulnerable populations (elderly, impoverished, etc.). The foundations and practice of faith community nursing are also presented within the context of different faiths, including Christianity, Judaism, Islam, Hinduism, and Buddhism. Ideal in a clinical setting, this book will also be of value as a quick refresher for certifying as a faith community nurse.
