Welcome to the Faith Nursing guide!
Faith community nursing is a practice specialty that focuses on the intentional care of the spirit, promotion of an integrative model of health and prevention and minimization of illness within the context of a community of faith.
The FCN ministry focuses on nurturing healthy relationships between the individual, other people, the created environment and God, thus promoting health and wellbeing. Individuals with existing disease are empowered to take responsibility for their health and manage their condition using the FCN as a resource person and advocate. Care occurs in the context of a supportive faith community.
