A collaborative course offering of Augustana University, Avera Health and Sanford Health.     

Faith Community Nursing prepares registered nurses to address health needs with a faith community and assists interested churches in initiating Faith Community Nursing services.

This course prepares a licensed, registered nurse in the specialty practice of professional nursing (Faith Community/Parish Nursing) that focuses on the intentional care of the spirit as well as the promotion of whole-person health and the prevention or minimization of illness within the context of a faith community and the wider community.
