Faith Community Nursing Workshop


CBU’s Nursing Program and the Church Health Center partnered recently to present a workshop course in Foundations of Faith Community Nursing at CBU. This course is designed to introduce and prepare registered nurses for the specialty practice of faith community nursing. Spirituality is a content thread woven through out each module. The modules are divided into the units of spirituality, professionalism, wholistic health and community. The modules, spread over several weeks, have varying lengths from two to four hours for total contact hours of 34 hours and include such topics as prayer, self-care, ethical issues, documentation, health promotion, life issues of violence, suffering and grief, assessment and care coordination. The entire course is being videotaped and put into an online format with a target date of August 2013. For more information on faith community nursing, please visit the Church Health Center’s website.
