Greetings to all Region 1
Blessings To all Faith Community Nurses/Parish Nurses—
Hello! I am Anita Huntley, Faith Community Nurse (FCN) at Christ the King Lutheran Church in Snohomish, Washington, and Region One Director on the Evangelical Lutheran Parish Nurse Association (ELPNA) board. I received my Bachelor's of Science in Nursing from Pacific Lutheran University in Tacoma, Washington and my Master’s in Public Health from Benedictine University in Chicago. I completed a foundation course in Faith Community Nursing several years ago and have remained active in our specialty practice ever since at the level time would allow. Since my retirement from school nursing, I have increased my health ministry time and have been moving my practice into new directions.
I live in Snohomish, Washington, a small town within commuting distance of Everett and Seattle. Snohomish is close enough to both larger communities for concerts, theatre, and fine dining, and I look forward to attending the high school football games and the Easter Parade when COVID is under control.
I am hoping to find other FCNs/PNs in within Region 1, identify our practice strengths, share support, and learn from one another! In this way we will be able to assist each other in ongoing education, online communication, and collegial relationships.
If you are a FCN/PN in Region 1, please contact me at the email address below as to how we can serve each other and our congregations.
May God’s Blessings Give You Happiness and May you Grow in Your Ministry.
Anita Huntley BSN MPH RN
