New Zealand Faith Community Nursing Association (NZFCNA) is a national Christian organisation that equips nurses to serve in their local community.
Christian nurses are in a unique and privileged position as they are bilingual in faith and health. As nursing professionals they can serve an important role in the community, promoting health and well-being through education, advocacy and care management as well as providing pastoral support through a church fellowship.
Whether it is guiding someone through the health care system, or sharing their journey of faith, Faith Community Nurses are passionate about providing truly holistic healthcare.
"He sent them out to proclaim the kingdom of God and to heal." Luke 9:2
It is because of these powerful words that our Faith Community Nurses strive to provide care for those in their local faith community, approaching it as a form of mission.
