Seventh-day Adventists have long recognized the value of health. We believe that, in the whole person, spiritual and physical healing cannot be separated. Besides ministering to our own members, we wish to reach out to our communities, serving their needs as Christ did. Faith Community Nursing is one response to human need.
Faith Community Nursing is the specialized practice of professional nursing that focuses on the intentional care of the spirit as part of the process of promoting wholistic health and preventing or minimizing illness in a faith community. The Faith Community Nursing ministry operates through the skills of registered nurses serving within a ministerial setting and functioning within a health ministry.
