While the full course is designed for nurses, we have created day one as a stand alone session for all members of a health ministries team. This session will provide an overview of health ministries, giving attendees information to establish and grow health ministries within a faith based setting.
Introductory Session March 23, 2013

Education Center Auditorium, Middletown, OH
This session may serve as a stand alone introduction into the concepts of both Health Ministry and Faith Community Nursing (FCN). It is appropriate for all members of a health ministry team including: nurses, allied health professionals, clergy and congregational staff.
Continued Training for Health Ministries Nursing Staff April 26-28, 2013

This three-day session completes the Faith Community Nursing (FCN) Foundations course and is offered as a follow-up to the first session.
