Six nurses recently completed Foundations of Faith Community Nursing, a course sponsored by the Congregational Nurse and Health Ministry Program of the Shepherd’s Center of Greater Winston-Salem.

The program educates and supports nurses and others interested in developing ministries of health and wholeness in their faith communities. It uses a volunteer model, where nurses and lay persons from participating congregations are volunteers within their own faith community.  The program is open to any faith community,  welcomes religious and ethnic diversity and strives to meet the needs of the under-served in the community.

Foundations of Faith Community Nursing is based on a curriculum developed through the International Parish Nurse Resource Center. It was coordinated by Judy Iannuzzi, director of the Congregational Nurse and Health Ministry Program. She was assisted by subject experts from the community.

The following are this year’s graduates:
• Amanda Johnson of Center Baptist Church in Gastonia
• Valerie Ann Moore of Common Ground at UMC of Stanley
• Susan Naylor of Mt. Tabor Methodist in Winston-Salem
• Sharon Pilkington of Ranlo Church of God in Gastonia
• Joan Silvis of Swansboro First Baptist in Swansboro
• Cheryl Stubbs of For You Christ Ministry in Winston-Salem

The participants received 36.23 contact hours of continuing education credit through Wake Forest Baptist Health Nursing Education, an Approved Provider of continuing nursing education by the North Carolina Nurses Association, and an accredited approver by the American Nurses Credentialing Center’s Commission on Accreditation.
