The Art and Science of Spiritual Care

Spiritual care is a fundamental part of nursing practice, but for professional practice it is critical to differentiate spiritual care from other Christian activities such as preaching or evangelizing. 

 The goal of this course is to provide baseline knowledge for providing evidence-based professional spiritual care.  In addition to presenting the scientific evidence, the art of nursing is emphasized as the course uses professional language and will provide practice in communication skills . 

The student will leave the course able to identify and address spiritual care needs in a variety of settings for any patient coming from any various religious/spiritual belief and backgrounds, or even no faith tradition at all.
