    Parish/Faith Community Nurse Preparation Course 

    sponsored by Concordia University/Wisconsin

    Starting July 15, 2024

    Course Overview

              Since 1989, Concordia has offered educational programs in parish nursing and congregational health ministries. Our Parish/Faith Community Nursing course is offered completely online for a flexible way to learn about congregational health ministries. The course consists of eight one-week units that approach nursing in the faith community from all angles. You will study Jesus’ example of caregiving and service to others, learn how to use healthcare as a ministry of the Gospel, and how to start and run a health ministry in your own church. This program integrates a Christian caregiving framework to developing a holistic congregational health and parish nurse ministry in serving your congregation in mind, body and spirit.  We offer two sections yearly:  one starts January 1, and second section starts July 15. 

    Contact Director of Parish Nursing and Congregational Health Ministries: Carol at for questions.
