Shaping a Healthy Community
|Contact Staff for this Program|
A key component of Interfaith Health and Wellness is its Faith Community Nursing program, also known as parish or congregational nursing, which provides critical health promotion and maintenance within the context of the values, beliefs and practices of a faith community, and healthcare assistance by assisting individuals who might not be receiving the care they need. During the month of June, the program offers a Foundations of Faith Community Nursing course which provides Registered Nurses the education and support to create health ministry programs in their respective congregations.

The Interfaith Health and Wellness Program provides a mentoring experience that integrates the Faith Community Nursing theory with practice in a faith-based relationship in which both the Mentor and novice Faith Community Nurse strengthen their spiritual and professional skills based on mutual trust, security, confidentiality, respect and professional sharing.
Mentors and mentees meet at mutually agreeable times and within a time period that fosters a positive outcome – a great opportunity to interact with colleagues and increase your education within a timeframe that works for you.
