OLBH Sponsors Faith Community Nurse Preparation Course
OLBH's Healthy Community Services (HCS) is sponsoring The Faith Community Nurse Preparation Course this summer. The course is free with the first classes taking place June 14 and 15 and remaining courses running two days in July and again in August.
The Faith Community Nurse Preparation Course will enable participants to provide wholistic health care in their local churches. The program will incorporate lecture, small group work, discussion, projects and audiovisual material for an interactive educational experience. Faculty will include Bon Secours Faith Community Health Ministry leaders as well as selected guest lecturers. A certificate will be given for completion of the course. Nurses will be able to earn contact hours.
The course is open to registered nurses who feel spiritually called to a wholistic health ministry in their local church. The course is based on the national standardized curriculum of the International Parish Nurse Resource Center, a ministry of the Church Health Center, in Memphis, Tenn.
