I am wondering if other nurses have been taught this in nursing school. Also, are you receiving ongoing educational support through your employer or other program?

- Apr 10 by SoldierNurse22We were taught how to do this, but it was very general. Basically, we were told to ask if they had any religious preference. If so, we could then offer them 1) the services provided at the hospital and/or 2) encourage them to have their clergy/religious leaders visit them. There are areas in the assessment (admission) that ask about this very directly and if there is anything we can do to meet their spiritual needs while they are inpatient.
