Faith Community Nursing
Spirituality in nursing practice is found throughout history. Nursing leaders such as Florence Nightingale promoted care of the whole person body, mind, and spirit. Currently, nurses in all practice settings are responsible for providing some sort of spiritual care, but not all nurses are prepared.
The specialty practice of faith community nursing offers all professional nurses the opportunity to develop their spiritual care skills. Faith community nurses may practice in various settings such as churches, mosques, and other faith communities, or they may use the spiritual care skills learned from faith community nursing in other practice settings such as hospitals, home health, hospice, and organizations.
