About the Author:

Elizabeth Johnston Taylor, PhD, RN, FAAN, professor, Loma Linda University School of Nursing, Loma Linda, California, has pursued a program of research exploring the intersection of spirituality, religiosity, health, and nursing for 25 years. Her clinical experiences as an oncology nurse created for her a deep interest in these topics and led her to pursue a PhD (University of Pennsylvania), a postdoctoral fellowship (University of California, Los Angeles), clinical pastoral education, and training in spiritual direction.

The desire to help nurses understand and support patients’ spiritual wellness during health-related transitions has motivated Dr. Johnston Taylor to write numerous articles and book chapters. Her books include Spiritual Care: Nursing Theory, Research, and Practice (2002), What Do I Say? Talking With Patients About Spirituality (2007), and Religion: A Clinical Guide for Nurses (Springer Publishing, 2012). IT
