Faith Community Nursing

Faith Community Nursing (formerly Parish Nurse Project) - Sacred Work!
In partnership with the Ida V. Moffett School of Nursing at Samford University, Alabama BNF schedules training for those interested in Faith Community Nursing (formerly Parish Nursing). The Faith Community Nurse Preparation Class is guided by professionals trained at the International Parish Nurse Resource Center. It is an opportunity for RNs to earn CEU credits while preparing themselves to lead in a congregational health ministry in their own church.  

The Faith Community Nurse (formerly known as Parish Nurse) is a connector to bring total wellness to her congregation. She helps her church reclaim the spiritual dimension of health and the church as a healing place. Through a health ministry the congregation has new tools to connect the broader community to total wellness - body - mind - spirit!
