Foundations of Faith Community Nursing Curriculum
This course is designed to introduce and prepare registered nurses for the specialty practice of faith community nursing. Spirituality is a content thread woven through out each module. It was revised in 2014. The modules are divided into the units of spirituality, professionalism, wholistic health, and community. They have varying lengths from two to four hours for total contact hours of 38 to 40.5 hours and include such topics as spiritual care, prayer, self-care, ethical issues, documenting practice, behavioral health, health promotion, life issues of violence, suffering and grief, assessment and care coordination. This curriculum is taught by faith community nurses across the United States and worldwide by the Westberg Institute’s educational partners.
