Abstract

ABSTRACT: What does it mean to practice self-care? How do we care effectively and compassionately for our patients while maintaining our own physical and emotional health? Nursing associations have incorporated the importance of self-care into models for good nursing practice. The perspective on self-care can change from one of self-focus to one of stewardship. Self-care from a stewardship view reflects what God is already doing to take care of us.
