Establishing the role of nurse chaplain through A Listening Heart Ministries
David A Currie
This thesis project describes the concept and development of the role of nurse chaplain by the author, through A Listening Heart Ministries. The role allows her to bring to her chaplaincy her many years of experience working as a registered nurse. She is seeking to establish the new role in a way that affirms and incorporates all of her nursing education, knowledge and experience as the background for this new chaplain role. The two hypotheses she addresses in this thesis are that there is a great need for more chaplain services in various settings, including nursing homes, assisted living facilities, and homeless shelters; and that the role of chaplain is enriched in many ways when the chaplain is also a nurse.
