The past 25 years have witnessed an escalating discussion on the role of spirituality within health care. This scholarly volume is rooted in the belief that not only is religion integral to nursing care, but the religious beliefs of both nurse and patient can significantly influence care and its outcome. It offers an in-depth analysis of the ways in which religion influences the discipline of nursing, its practitioners, and treatment outcomes.

Through the contributions of an international cadre of nurse scholars representing the world's major religious traditions, the book explores how theories, history and theologies shape the discipline, bioethical decision making, and the perspective of the nurse or patient who embraces a particular religion. It examines the commonalities between the values and thinking of nursing and religion and identifies basic domains in which additional research is necessary. The authors believe that ultimately, scholarly dialogue on the relationship between religion and nursing will foster and enhance nursing practice that is ethical and respectful of personal values.

Key Features:

  • Offers in-depth analysis of how religion influences the discipline of nursing, its practitioners, and treatment outcomes
  • Uses critical theories to explore the intersections of religion, ethics, culture, health, gender, power, and health policy
  • Includes an overview of all major world religions
  • Focuses on the implications of religion for nursing practice rather than nursing interventions
  • Designed for graduate and upper-level undergraduate students, nurse academicians and clinicians
