Faith Community nurses provide a holistic approach to their practice: physical, psychological, social with a uniquely spiritual component to care. Faith Community Nursing (formerly Parish Nursing) is a recognized nursing specialty with Standards of Practice for Faith Community Nurses developed by the American Nurses Association and Health Ministry Association. The Course has been developed by the Westberg Institute for Faith Community Nurses. The five day course has approval from the Arizona Nurses Association for 42.5 contact hours for professional nurses.
Dates will be Sept 30/October 1; October 7/October 8; October 15. time for all days will be 8 AM to 5 PM.
The Catholic Health Assocation fully endorses Faith Community nursing and has published a monograph on the topic.
“Faith communities and health care organizations are both called to heal. While they have different practitioners, vocabularies and tools, they share concern for the well-being of the people they serve. CHA is pleased to gather resources and practices on this page for sharing amongst faith community nurses and our members.”
