What is a Faith Community/Parish Nurse?

Faith Community/Parish Nursing is a specialty practice recognized by the American Nurses Association. FCNs are registered nurses who work in a faith community to address health issues of its members as well as to those in the broader community. FCNs have also completed courses specifically designed for health ministry. The experienced nurse can help with the assessment of health status, health needs, and collaboration with health agencies. The core principle of this practice is the intentional care of the spirit of those the FCN assists.
