The chapters are built around these key ideas, organized around a particular scriptural theme:Ch. 1: The nurses vocation.Ch. 2: Nursing as a ministry.Ch. 3: The nurses role as healer.Ch. 4: Comfort for the nurse in difficult times.Ch. 5: The source of the nurses strength.Ch. 6: The rewards of nursing the sick.Ch. 7: Nursings call to reverence the sacredness of human life.Ch. 8: The spirituality of the nurse as a thing of grace and beauty.The Nurses Calling, which is conscious of the changing face of contemporary care and our health care system in crisis, is unique in its blend of practicality with a strong spiritual dimension.

Nurses and those in the health care professions will find it to be a source of comfort, inspiration and growth.
