The Parish Nurse Ministry Program of Concordia College in Moorhead, MN is offering a Foundations of Faith Community Nursing/Parish Nursing course October 3-7, 2022 (the deadline to register is September 19th ) at Olivet Lutheran Church in Fargo, ND. The course format is in-person as we do not offer a distance learning option. The program is open to licensed registered nurses interested in starting health and healing ministries.
Based on the current 2019 curriculum developed through the Westberg Institute, the program topics include:
- The role of the faith community nurse within the ministry team
- Spiritual care and prayer
- Integrating faith and health, health and healing, and caring for those experiencing issues across the lifespan
- A mentoring session, Service of Healing, and Service of Dedication
The program cost of $450 includes the participant workbook and a copy of the ANA’s practice standards for FCNs (this is a $100 value), and a binder of program specific materials. A small scholarship may be available to those who are not sponsored by a faith community. The cost also includes refreshments and some meals for the week! Lodging is not available on site but there are many hotels in the F/M area.
