Elizabeth Johnston Taylor, PhD, RN, FAAN, Professor, Loma Linda University School of Nursing, Loma Linda, California, USA, 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 1992), a post-doctoral fellowship (UCLA, 1993-95), Clinical Pastoral Education, and training in spiritual direction. Her life experiences include a 4-year stint as Research Director, Mary Potter Hospice, Wellington, New Zealand.
The desire to help nurses understand and support patient spiritual health during health-related transitions has motivated Beth to publish over 130 articles and book chapters. Her books include Spiritual Care: Nursing Theory, Research, and Practice (Prentice Hall, 2002), What Do I Say? Talking with Patients about Spirituality (Templeton Press, 2007), Religion: A Clinical Guide for Nurses (Springer, 2012), and Fast Facts About Religion: Implications for Nursing Care (Springer, 2019).
