The modern world has brought us science and technology, and with-it new information and knowledge, bringing us choices we never had before. As our modern world rapidly progresses religious leaders around the world are being forced to examine some of their most basic beliefs to determine if these new technologies pose ethical dilemmas. Some of the most controversial technologies that are present in healthcare are abortion, the use of birth control, euthanasia, organ donation, and stem cell research. [Mol13] As nurses, these are some of the issues that we encounter with patients regarding the intersection of faith and healthcare. Our beliefs and faith cannot dictate how we respond to patients and situations. We must understand and have empathy for all faiths and beliefs or lack there of and care for patients equally and universally ethically without judgement based on our own ethical principles.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
