Abstract

ABSTRACT: Developmental theories can help nurses better understand how to support patients in their care. Adolescence, a particularly tumultuous period for many, is an opportune time for nurses to support the development of identity and faith, especially for nurse practitioners (NPs) who may be in longer-term outpatient relationships. Nursing interventions are offered to assist in supporting adolescent faith development.
