A Christian path
Nurse training involves equipping nurses to deal with patients in a holistic manner. Nurses learn to address the social and psychological aspects of their patients, as well as the physical needs, but the spiritual aspect is often neglected. Nurses should have the opportunity to examine the claims of different religions and, particularly, to consider the claims of Christianity. They may then feel better equipped to deal with situations, including those in which patients have sought to satisfy their spiritual hunger with dangerous practices.

Illuminating meaning and transforming issues of spirituality in HIV diseases and AIDS: an application of Parse's theory of human becoming
Nurses may be in a unique position to help patients with HIV/AIDS face spiritual issues. Patients with HIV/AIDS are often young, disenfranchised, and ill-prepared to handle issues of mortality, life meaning, hope, faith and a relationship with their God. A method for guiding patients through spiritual issues as proposed by R.R. Parse can be useful in a nursing setting.
