Nurses historically have their roots in the Christian concept of ministry (Widerquist, Davidhizar, 1994). This ministry calls for nurses to serve their neighbors who are in need of physical or spiritual needs (1994). As nurses, our role is to provide a holistic plan of care for our patients and to assist persons to find meaning in their situation, respond to spiritual distress and help persons to experience hope (1994).
