What is Faith Community Nursing?

Faith Community Nursing is a recognized specialty practice for registered nurses combining professional nursing and health ministry. Faith Community Nurses are often called parish nurses, congregational health nurses, or church nurses, and emphasize health and healing within a faith community. This is an independent practice in which the nurse performs roles of educator, referral agent, advocate, personal health counselor, developer of support groups, volunteer coordinator, and integrator of faith and health. The spiritual aspect is key to faith community nursing by actively promoting wellness, wholeness, and preventive health.

Course Information

This multi-denominational Faith Community Nursing Foundations Course offers experienced registered nurses an educational and spiritual program based on the core curriculum developed by the International Parish Nurse Resource Center, and is organized to assist members of all faith communities to grow toward holistic health from a global perspective. This course enables registered nurse participants to:

  • Gain an understanding of the theoretical knowledge necessary to begin in practice as a Faith Community Nurse.
  • Discuss the various roles of the Faith Community Nurse in Practice.
  • Examine and nurture personal spiritual development.
  • Identify a network of continuing education and support.

Non-nurses interested in promoting health ministry within their faith community may enroll in the program and will receive a pin entitled “Health Minister” upon completion of the program.

The Faith Community Nursing Program works in collaboration with the Faith Community Nurses Association of Oklahoma to share practice ideas in faith communities and to nurture professional spiritual development.
