Annual Foundations Curriculum Training
Faith Community Nursing(FCN) is a specialized practice of professional nursing that focuses on the intentional care of the spirit as well as the promotion of the whole-person health and the prevention or minimization of illness within the context of a faith community and the wider community.
Ascension St. Vincent’s FCN is offering the endorsed Foundations of Faith Community and Parish Nursing Curriculum to experienced registered nurses. This educational program is based on the 2019 core curriculum developed by the Westberg Institute Faith Community Nursing and the Association of Spiritual Care, New York, NY.
Parish Nursing, now known as” Faith Community Nursing”, provides a “Holistic” blending of nursing expertise and spiritual care as professional nurse’s practice in congregations/parishes as part of a Health Ministry Team. This educational program is multi-dimensional and is organized to assist all faith communities to grow toward “Holistic” health from a global perspective. The goal is to increase the number of faith community and parish nurses in faith group communities; promoting the well-being of faith community members by helping them to access health care with the support of clergy, the faith community nurse, and the church ministry team.
The Foundations of Faith Community Nursing Curriculum incorporates multidimensional learning activities to cover a wide scope of topics including but not limited to:
History & Philosophy
