Abstract

ABSTRACT: Engaging with emerging discourses on religion, ethics, and nursing, more than 100 nurses from around the world gathered at Trinity Western University, Langley, British Columbia, Canada, for the 2012 Faith & Nursing Symposium: Religion and Ethics in Pluralistic Healthcare Contexts, May 10-12, 2012. The symposium also marked the launch of two ground-breaking books: Religion, Religious Ethics, and Nursing and Religion: A Clinical Guide for Nurses. In this article and the accompanying Conference Proceedings (supplemental digital content), we discuss the symposium theme and the engaged, respectful dialogue that characterized the landmark event. Based on the symposium, we conclude that Christian nursing scholars can and should play a key role in leading critical discussions of the role of religion and ethics in pluralistic healthcare contexts.
