2024 Foundations of Faith Community Nursing & Health Ministry Course – Six Day Course ending December 3, 2024

Interesting in being part of Faith Community Health Network? We're training faith ministers and faith community nurses to support a diverse community.

Is a Faith Community Health Ministry in Your Future?

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 nationally recognized nursing practice 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.

Faith Community Health Network is partnering to offer the Foundations for Faith Community Nursing for licensed registered nurses (RNs) and a parallel Foundations for Health Ministry course for nurses with inactive licenses and faith community lay members. The course is six sessions held on Zoom from 8am – 5pm on Mondays and Tuesdays: November 11-12, 18, 25 2024, and December 2-3, 2024. Cost for the six days of training is $325. Course cost includes four books and 40+ continuing education contact hours. We will host an in-person reception from 2pm – 4pm on December 8, 2024 for those who can attend. This course is open to – and welcomes – all faith traditions.

Our new 2024 course is open for registration! For registration information visit EventBrite at, contact: Deb Fell-Carlson, BSN, RN, MSPH, Foundations Course Coordinator and Lead Educator, at or text 541-248-0595.
