Foundations of Faith Community Nursing Course/Foundations for Health Ministry (Six day course, Mon and Tues, every other week)
Faith Community Health Network is partnering to offer the Foundations for Faith Community Nursing for active and retired nurses and a parallel Foundations for Health Ministry course for faith community lay members. The course is six sessions held on Zoom from 8am – 5pm on Mondays and Tuesdays: August 29–30, September 12–13, and September 26, and from 8am-2pm on September 27, 2022, providing nearly 40 hours of supported instruction. Course cost is dependent on grant funding. This course is open to all faith traditions.
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.
The Faith Community Health Network of the Mid-Willamette Valley provides training and support for faith community nurses and health ministers to serve their congregations and community by promoting advocacy, improving health literacy, health equity and overall access to care, and promoting spiritual, emotional, and physical well-being. The Faith Community Health Network is a 509(a)(2) public charity and can receive tax deductible donations.
