Abstract
Background:|Creighton University’s College of Nursing (CON), consistent with the University mission, focuses on the unique journey of each student to seek the truths and values essential to a fulfilling human life. Inspired by this mission, the faculty of the CON worked to integrate spirituality into the one-year accelerated nursing curriculum (ANC). The ANC Integrated Spirituality Model was developed and used as an organizing framework. Specific student activities involving spirituality and reflective practice were identified for each of the three semesters of the ANC to promote leveling of the student learning activities. The center of the model is rooted in Jesuit Catholic Tradition and is connected to the four Charisms adopted by the College of Nursing; Finding God in all Things, Women and Men for and With Others, Faith that Does Justice and Cura Personalis. Student outcomes related to spirituality link with the four charisms. Each of the intended outcomes also ties to the guiding principles of nursing education; CU-CON Program objectives, BSN Essentials and the American Nurses Association (ANA) Code of Ethics. A “crosswalk” aligning spirituality themes, student outcomes, guiding principles, evaluation measures and student activities serves as a curricular integration framework.
