Faith Community Nursing


  • Faith Community Nursing

  • Faith community nursing is a recognized specialty practice that combines professional nursing and health ministry. Saint Francis University offers opportunities for nurses to continue their education in Faith Community Nursing.

    Faith community nursing emphasizes health and healing within a faith community. The philosophy of faith community nursing embraces four major concepts: spiritual formation; professionalism; shalom as health and wholeness; and community, incorporating culture and diversity.

    • Visiting church members at home or in the hospital
    • Providing counseling on health-related issues
    • Making referrals to community resources and providing assistance in obtaining needed health services
    • Assisting members in adapting to important lifestyle changes
    • Teaching classes on how to maintain good health
    • Providing health screenings
    • Developing support groups within the church
    • Training and coordinating volunteers
