Foundations of Faith Community Nursing Course

Foundations of Faith Community Nursing Course

A Faith Community Nurse is not simply a registered nurse who happens to be a member of a faith community. Faith Community Nursing is a recognized nursing specialty. The Foundations of Faith Community Nursing Course prepares nurses to stand in the gap; to bridge the health care system and faith community. Faith Community Nurses and Health Ministers work together to open the door for important conversations about health and wellness of the mind, body, and spirit and provide additional caring connection and support for faith community members facing today’s many challenges.
Faith Community Health Network is partnering to offer the Foundations for Faith Community Nursing for licensed registered nurses (RNs) and a parallel Foundations for Health Ministry course for retired nurses (with inactive licenses) and faith community lay members. The course is six sessions held on Zoom from 8am – 5pm on Mondays and Tuesdays: October 16-17, 2023, October 30-31, 2023, and November 13-14, 2023 providing over 40 hours of supported instruction. Course cost includes four books and 40 continuing education contact hours. Cost for the six days of training is $275 for residents of Linn, Benton or Lincoln Counties in Oregon and $325 for out-of-area residents. We will host an in-person reception from 6:30pm - 8:00pm on November 14, 2023 for those who can attend. This course is open to - and welcomes - all faith traditions.
