We are called to be Christ-like and much of Christ’s ministry in the New Testament involves healing others physically, spiritually, and emotionally. Jesus met the needs of the people that he encountered, and that is what Christian nurses are called to do as well. Christian nurses should also reflect the love that God has given us. God calls us to love Him and to love and serve others. Related Book: The Glass Castle
“Remember, Christians, Negroes, black as Cain, May be refin’d, and join th’ angelic train” (Lines 7-8). Wheatley’s overall message for the poem is that blacks can be saved and “join th’ angelic train”. This shows how Wheatley desires to spread the good news of Christianity to everyone, not just whites. She wished to express to the readers that faith in God was possible to both blacks and whites, despite how they are treated in a racist society. Phyllis Wheatley was greatly influenced by her religion, and it showed throughout all of her poetry.

A personal philosophy of nursing allows nurses to guide and shape their practice. As Molzahn & Shields states, "we are in the privileged position of working closely with human beings and helping them deal with many aspects of the human condition" (2008, p.25). By working daily with patients who all have distinct and unique healthcare experiences, I believe that it is crucial to have a set of values and ethics that guide how we care for our patients. By holding Christian beliefs and values, I believe that it is important to care for other people the way Jesus cares for us, and to take time to notice the little glimpses of Christ shown in other people. When thinking about how I can have an impact on my patients, I keep in mind that "for most people, most of the time, God comes to us in the valleys and plains of life" (Doornbos, Groenhout, & Hotz, 2005, p.21).

St. Catherine is a patron of Europe, firefighters, against fire, bodily ills, illness, nurses, miscarriages, people ridiculed for their piety, and sick people. I chose this saint because of the patronage and because of her life story. I like the way that God convinced her to live her life while worshipping him, showing me you can make time for God every day.
