Greetings Region 5 - Faith Community Nurses ! 


You can find helpful resources for your church here on ELPNA website and at the Church Health Center's website -  If you are looking for a Foundations of FCN course, you can find information about the ones coming up there too!                          Is anyone from Region 5 attending the "International Westberg Symposium" April 8-10 in Memphis Tn.?ELPNA will be there so look for our booth.  If you would like to help, let one of us know.


With the help of the list of churches in Region 5 on the ELCA website, I've been looking for the parish nurses in our region by looking at church websites.  If you know of parish nurses, please let me know so I might reach out to them.


Please send me news about what's going on in your area of Region 5 so we can publicize the events for you here on the website.  Is there anyone out there who would like to help organize a gathering for faith community nurses in our region?  Let me know.

Blessings to you and your ministry!
