Online Foundations of Faith Community Nursing
March 4 @ 8:00 am - May 10 @ 5:00 pm UTC-6$475
The Foundations of Faith Community Nursing curriculum was developed by the International Parish Nurse Resource Center and the Church Health Center in 2014 from a Judeo-Christian perspective that is respectful of and applicable to other faith traditions. Students will learn about the history and philosophy of faith community nursing, health and healing from various faith traditions, and issues of life transitions, such as loss, suffering and violence. Professional ethics, documentation and tools to begin practice as a faith community nurse will be explored. The content includes introduction to the four major concepts of faith community nursing: the spiritual dimension, professionalism, wholistic health, and community and cultural diversity. Participants will apply the nursing process in a leadership role as a FCN.
The course will use the standardized curriculum developed by the international Parish Nurse Resource Center and the Church Health Center (2014). It will run asynchronously over the ten week period. Students will have reading assignments, discussion posts and assignments to complete and submit online. A welcome letter will be sent after registration with information on ordering the participant manual and dates and times for online orientation.
