What does a Faith Community Nurse do?
Several people asked me about the role of the Faith Community Nurse (FCN). Briefly, the FCN is a Registered Nurse who protects, promotes, and enhances health and wellness in the faith community, intentionally focusing on spiritual care. Wellness includes the physical, mental, social, environmental, and spiritual sides of our lives—emphasizing wholeness, rather than cure. The FCN does not take the place of your healthcare provider or home care but works alongside you to assist you in getting the care you need, supporting you in the process.
The official description includes:
I look forward to working together with you in becoming our best selves!
