So I am in graduate school to obtain my FNP. One of the classes I am taking had a guest speaker today whose dissertation was in prayer. Now I am all for people believing in whatever they need to believe in to get themselves through the day but don't I get enough of having to be understanding at work. Now I have to listen to an entire 2 hour lecture on how spirituality and prayer are necessary for everyone and necessary for me to be a good nurse? I am a good caring nurse without prayer and/or spirituality. I must admit that I do appreciate the eastern philosophies more than the western mythologies; however, I just do not understand why it is necessary to listen to this stuff (to put it nicely) to get my master's.
