ABSTRACT: Recent civil unrest has proven that positive role models are essential to help bridge the nation's racial divide. Nurses are primed to be among these role models as trusted and respected healthcare professionals. Nursing's code of ethics defines nurses' moral obligations to respect all people and advocate for justice. Christian nurses face a higher calling: to love one's neighbors as themselves. This article explores the application of a Christian worldview of Fawcett's metaparadigm of nursing as a foundation for nurses to extend the love of Christ and promote racial healing.
