For Educators

The mission of the Westberg Institute is strongly supported by the multitudes of professional educational partners who provide the Foundations of Faith Community Nursing course across the United States and around the world. These educational partners represent hospital systems, academic schools of nursing, seminaries, nonprofit organizations, religious organizations and Christian denominations, as well as continuing nursing professional development departments, organizations and faith community nursing networks. Thank you, educational partners, for making it possible for registered nurses nationally and internationally to enter into the specialty practice of faith community nursing!
