Health Care Provider and Faith Diversity Caroline Uchehara Grand Canyon University HLT 310 V August 21, 2011 Faith Diversity Spirituality is the foundation of holistic practice in nursing. Spirituality has evolved beyond religious considerations to incorporate multidimensional and existential perspectives that are integral to maintaining the patients’ well-being.

Spirituality and the perception of disease are inter-related;religious beliefs may act as coping mechanisms. Due to the nature of profession, nurses provide care to patients of diverse faith.
HEAING HOSPITAL: A DARING PARADIGM Mildred Tuchez Grand Canyon University HEALING HOSPITAL: A DARING PARADIGM When I consider the field of health care and what it means to be a caregiver I start to formulate in my mind what the term “care” means. For many people it means being Compassionate, supportive and striving to make a difference in other people’s lives. It means being passionate about the care we give. It means providing high quality value driven care. To provide care that is all encompassing we need to meet the needs that the mind, spirit, body and soul.

I have good communication skills and motivation to work on my own as well as being a strong member of a team. I have a calm manner especially in stressful situations and I strongly believe in treating people equally no matter of their ethnical or social background. I have been working at a hospital as a maternity support volunteer in a delivery suite. My role is to assist women in labour, help them ease the pain and make their birth experience as pleasant as possible. It could entail anything, from making a cup of tea, with midwife’s permission encouraging them to stay active, giving a soothing back rub, helping to have a wash, changing bedding and run any needed errands.
Stress management, healthy diet, proper amount of sleep can all increase job performance. Healthy relationships with staff and coworkers, family and friends are also very important to nursing because when we have good relationships with the people around us we tend to want that with our patients as well, which will enhance the care they receive (Hensel, 2011).

Nurses are to apply their personal values and treat each patient as an individual and not judge them based upon their differences. Each patient is entitled to quality competent care, not only physically but emotionally and spiritually. Patients are not flesh alone, but have feelings and beliefs that need to be understood and met. According to Lachman, 2012, “Care can be considered simply and ethical task and thus a burden of one more thing to do, or it can be considered a commitment to attending to and becoming enthusiastically involved in the patient’s needs,” (p.114).

Theory Description I believe that my core personal beliefs and values are directly reflected in my philosophy of nursing. My values of security and family are reflected in patient centered care. My values of God as the guiding force in my life and kindness are reflected in compassionate care and my values of accountability and life-long learning are reflected in competent care.
