Online Foundations of Faith Community Nursing (Asynchronous)

May 7 @ 8:00 am - June 7 @ 5:00 pm CDT


Foundations of Faith Community Nursing

Faith community nursing, formerly known as parish nursing, is based on the idea that caring for ourselves and others is a manifestation of the love of God.  Through the practice of faith community nursing, nurses practice in a nursing specialty (faith community nursing) to provide spiritual care in their communities.  Those communities are typically faith congregations, but not always.  The goals of the work of the faith community nurse (FCN) are “the protection, promotion, and optimization of health and abilities; the prevention of illness and injury; and the alleviation of suffering in the context of values, beliefs, and practices of a faith community, such as a church, congregation, parish, synagogue, temple, mosque, or faith-based community agency.” (ANA/HMA, 2012, p.5).

The Foundations of Faith Community Nursing, based on the revised 2019 Westberg Curriculum, typically runs four weeks, averaging about 10 hours of coursework and readings per week.  The course is offered in an asynchronous format so that participants can learn from discussion and interaction with one another but not have to be online at the same time.  This event begins May 7th, 2021 and runs through June 7, 2021.  The cost of the course is $285, or free to the faculty of the St. David’s School of Nursing.  Register by emailing , or call 512-923-7916.  This event is being jointly provided with the St. David’s School of Nursing.

This continuing nursing education offering was approved by the St. David’s School of Nursing at Texas State University.  The St. David’s School of Nursing at Texas State University is an approved provider of continuing education by the Alabama Board of Nursing, ABNP1544, expiration date 10/28/2023.
