ABSTRACT

Observing and trying to cope with suffering is an integral part of nursing practice. Yet, there are times when this can take a toll on nurses, even leading to struggles with faith as nurses try to understand how a God who is good and all powerful can allow people to suffer. This article looks at a biblical understanding of suffering and discusses ways nurses can cope with caring for suffering people.
