- Apr 11, '12 by hiddencatRNSo......what topics ARE kosher to talk about on the Nursing and Spirituality board? Scrub patterns? Hot cocoa recipes? Gardening?
- Apr 11, '12 by tnbutterflyLooking at the Nursing and Spirituality forum description gives a good summary of what is appropriate for discussion.
- Apr 11, '12 by RNsRWePerhaps I can clarify my own post by saying that while being a Christian nurse may have some greater rewards than being, say, a non-Christian nurse, we wouldn't know that because the OP only said "I love being a Christian nurse" and goes on to describe what every nurse with ethics already does--regardless of religious affiliation.
I have no objection to the title of the post, so I clicked on it to see WHAT being a Christian nurse meant to her. And found that the only thing that identified the OP as a Christian was that opening title/sentence.
I'm certain she (or he) didn't mean to imply that non-Christian nurses would not have the same attributes or attitudes, of course, it's just that it does come across that way, imo. And that's where offense tends to come in.
- Apr 11, '12 by MerlynQuote from hiddencatRNThose are the topics we can have. Watch yourself, hiddencatRN, you said 'kosher' that may be offensive to any Nazi Nurses reading this.So......what topics ARE kosher to talk about on the Nursing and Spirituality board?

- Apr 11, '12 by zorabanksQuote from MerlynWOW Merlyn, why does the OP's comment sound "bloody condescending" to you? I believe in God of heaven and serve and work people that do not. I try to respect everyone regardless of what they beleive, their personal apperance, status, sexual perference, etc. Not sure why Op made statement, because I too thought they would have gone into more detail, but??? I didnt feel that you were being condescending by stating "I love being an Atheist nurse". Usually your comments are so well balanced. Just wondering...I love being an Atheist Nurse, 'I know that there are many people out there that don't share my beliefs but I care for them the same as I would someone who share my belief.'
That's bloody condescending of you, Your Majesty.

- Apr 11, '12 by leslie :-DQuote from Lauryen828i would appreciate clarification as to why you enjoy being a Christian nurse...I love being a Christian Nurse. I know there are many people out there that do not share my beliefs but, I care for them the same as I would someone who shared my beliefs. I did not become a Nurse to take care of people who believe the same as I do, I did it because I want to help people heal and make a difference in their healing process.
esp where you started a thread today, (i don't like my job) about the challenges you are experiencing in your very first nursing job.
at the very least, it seems contradictive and at best, it is just plain non-sensical.
- Apr 11, '12 by VespertinasHer thread about not liking her job related to the staff whereas this thread relates to patient care (I think)
- Apr 11, '12 by tewdlesI wonder...
I love being a Christian..
I love being a wife.
I love being a mother.
I love being a nurse.
All of those things exist in my life simultaneously. All of those things impact my practice and expression of each of those other things. My job is to keep the proper balances in my life where those things rub together.
