Item Description...
Judit Shelly and Arlene Miller define nursing for today based on a historically and theologically grounded understanding of the nurse's call.

Publishers Description
Nursing keeps changing. The role of the nurse grew out of a Christian understanding of the human person as created in the image of God, and viewed the body as a living unity and the "temple of the Holy Spirit" (1 Cor 6:19). Contemporary nursing, however, is increasingly characterized by a diminished understanding of personhood. The impact on patient care has proven confusing and discouraging to many nurses. In the newly revised and expanded Called to Care: A Christian Worldview for Nursing, Judith Allen Shelly and Arlene B. Miller define nursing for today based on a historically and theologically grounded understanding of the nurse's call: Nursing is a ministry of compassionate care for the whole person, in response to God's grace toward a sinful world, which aims to foster optimum health (shalom) and bring comfort in suffering and death for anyone in need. Called to Care asserts that nursing is a vocation, giving nurses a framework for understanding their mission and living out their calling: service to God through caring for others.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A delightful, inspirational and scholarly read!  May 29, 2006
Shelly and Miller have struck a chord in the heart of nursing with their improved 2nd edition of Called to Care. Their overview of the history of nursing and caring helps us understand how we got to where we are today, while their presentations on person, the environment, health as shalom, and nursing show us where we need to go in the future. Their explanation of a Christian worldview for nursing is both simple and deeply profound. I found myself cheering inside saying, "Yes, that's what nursing is about! That's why I'm a nurse!" This is a great book for nurses at the bedside, undergraduate and graduate students in nursing, nurse educators and nurse researchers alike.
Practical while scholarly - a classic in canon of nursing theory  May 15, 2006
Very readible using stories from nursing practice to illustrate a tapestry of content from nursing theory, philosophy,and history. The major concepts of the nursing paradigm and various worldviews provide structure for the content. Numerous illustrations and tables clarify content and case studies at the end of each chapter encourage engagement with that content. Useful to a broad spectrum of readers from undergrad and graduate students to practicing nurses whether they be in intensive care or parish nurse settings. In summary - a very valuable contribution to the canon of nursing literature.
Reaffirms my reason to be a nurse and the foundations of the profession.  Feb 14, 2006
This book is a must read for nurses and other health care professionals who want to reaffirm the meaning and purpose of their work as they are called to care by God. Shelly and Miller have expanded on the first edition by adding a purpose and objectives for each chapter, discussion questions, and case studies. In addition there are charts and tables comparing worldviews and nursing theories, detailing healing accounts in the New Testament, and contrasting the views on hope in suffering from various religions. Rich story telling brings authenticity and insight to patient care and student-faculty examples. Finally, we hear the inspiring voices of six Christian nursing leaders they share their visions for the future of nursing.
