Values in Conflict

Christian Nursing in a Changing Profession
  • By Judith A. Shelly
$14.99
($18.00)
Can nursing be Christian? The answer may seem obvious, yet in our pluralistic society, Christian nurses are often told to keep their values out of their work. In fact, Judith Shelly and Arlene Miller ask, can anyone nurse without being guided by some values? Or do advocates of "value-free" nursing actually struggle in their own, non-religious values? In response to such pressures, many Christian nurses adopt attitudes that don't really fit their faith. For instance, are "rugged individualism" and "the right to privacy" deeply Christian values? Shelly and Miller challenge believing nurses not to forget Christian values, but to better understand and apply those beliefs. Only then can they adopt a true "discipleship strategy" and more ably practice both their faith and their profession. This straightforward, practical book will immensely help and encourage Christians involved in the troubled (and troubling) contemporary profession that is nursing.
