Event description
Join your Christian faith with your nursing practice to make a real difference in peoples' lives right where you live

About this Event

Are you interested in joining your Christian faith with nursing to change lives? If you are then Faith Community Nursing may be a role for you to consider, and this FREE workshop to celebrate International Nurse Day may help you decide.

Faith Community Nursing is a role for today’s nurse.

The rise in mental health issues, stress, family break-down, early discharge from hospital, isolation and loneliness, chronic conditions and disabilities, and the requirements of an aging population, make Faith Community Nursing (FCN) a role that can add breadth and depth to the pastoral care of the church. It provides amazing outreach opportunities to a community in need. FCNs care for the whole person - body, mind and spirit, promoting health, healing, hope, peace, justice and faith for all.

Attend a FREE full day workshop: Introducing Faith Community Nursing

Part 1: Introducing Health and Pastoral Care Ministry

Part 1 sets the context and rationale for the ministry introducing the concepts of a health and care continuum, whole person ministry, strength-based approaches, transition pathways, and self-care.
