Foundations in Faith Community Nursing


The Foundations in Faith Community Nursing Course educates nurses of all faiths to assume the role of Faith Community nurse and begin program development within their own congregation. Faith Community Nurses do not provide hands-on care, but help members of their congregation associate their faith with good health and general well-being. An active RN license is required with a minimum of three years of professional experience.
