This Foundations of Faith Community Nursing course, developed through the Westberg Institute for Faith Community Nursing in consultation with the National League of Nursing (NLN) and the American Nurses Association Credentialing Center (ANACC), explores this specialty practice which combines professional nursing with health ministry.
Developed from the Judeo-Christian perspective, this 2019 curriculum is respectful of, and can be applied to, other faith traditions by exploring their differences and similarities. Some additional areas of discovery include: Practice History and Philosophy, Ethical Issues, Whole Person Health/Healing, along with Loss, Suffering & Greif in the context of a faith tradition. Participant will utilize the nursing process as it applies to the leadership role of an FCN, preparing them to initiate and maintain this health ministry within, and to, the larger surrounding community.
Participants must be a registered professional nurse with an unencumbered, active license, and access to a computer with internet connection. This four weekend 34 contact hour course activities will be conducted through the use of a web-based system.
