Christians and Nursing Schools

Nursing schools often give Christians who object to doing intimate procedures on the opposite sex a hard time. This is sad because there are so many wonderful Christians who desire to become nurses, but at the same time are at conflict with how they will have to violate their conviction. The world's push for acceptance of mixed gender nudity in various settings has been a part of the attack on traditional values. The medical community has bought into these lies and seeks to further breakdown the God-given barriers to the viewing and handling of peoples' bodies by the opposite sex.

Nursing schools should exempt students who have strong convictions against doing intimate procedures on the opposite sex. They could provide opposite sex simulators and mannequins for them to practice on. Check out how nursing students can stand up for their convictions on this article on Medical Patient Modesty's web site.

Nursing schools often work to desensitize nursing students to accept that private parts are like other body parts such as elbow and this is wrong. We are never meant to become so detached that seeing someone’s genitals becomes like looking at their elbow. This is contrary to God's word.

Many Christians who went to nursing schools were very uncomfortable with doing intimate procedures on a sexually mature opposite person, but they were pushed to let go of their convictions.

Here are a couple of examples where Christians got desensitized in nursing schools:

1.) A Christian guy when he first started nursing school was convicted that he should not do any breast examinations in nursing school many years ago. He was so upset about the idea because he felt it was wrong. In fact, his mother told him that he had to do the breast exams to pass nursing school. Then later, he was upset at the idea of giving a female patient a bath. This female patient told him to not worry and to go ahead and give her a bath. Today, he is a nurse anesthetist who does not seem to have reservations about doing intimate procedures on women.

2.) A conservative Christian female nurse shared that at first she felt uncomfortable doing intimate procedures on men because they were not her husband. But after the desensitization she went through, she does intimate procedures on male patients with no reservations now.

Christian nursing students should stand up for their convictions no matter how hard it is and do whatever they can do to get through nursing school without compromising their convictions. It is important to follow God's word rather than unbiblical standards.
