What is a “Faith Community Nurse"?
Faith Community Nurses are licensed, registered nurses who practice holistic health for self, individuals and the community using nursing knowledge combined with spiritual care. They function in paid and unpaid positions as members of the pastoral team in a variety of religious faiths, cultures, and countries. The focus of their work is on the intentional care of the spirit, assisting members of the faith community and other faith-based organizations to maintain and/or regain wholeness in body, mind, and spirit. FCN’s have a scope of practice defined by the American Nurses Association.
The care receiver or client, is an individual in time of need who receives care from a licensed nursing professional. For example they support them by offering coaching, referral, and educational support.
