This imparts Christian values in nursing of compassion, unconditional love, and caring. God is described as the creator of the universe, a loving heavenly father, who is present in all our relationships.

It centers on science objectivity and scientific facts in treating the patient as a whole. Often, wellness is seen as the absence of disease with aging and death as diseases to be cured.
