Faith Community Nurse

Enid Rank, FCN, BSN, RN

“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.”  — Galatians 5:22-23a NIV

enid-rank-nurseFaith Community Nursing:  The specialized practice of professional nursing that focuses on the intentional care of the spirit as well as the promotion of Wholistic Health.

Wholistic Health:  Based on an understanding that a healthcare consumer is an interconnected unity of physical, mental, social, environmental, and spiritual factors.

These are the clinical definitions of Faith Community Nursing and Wholistic Health, but how does that translate to my service to the Faith Community at Christ Lutheran Church?  Who am I, beyond the obvious professional roles of education, advocacy, pastoral support, and caregiver?

 

I am, your reminder that you are a Child of God.
I am, your faithful and compassionate listener.
I am, your shoulder to cry on.
I am, the arms that hold you and comfort you.
I am, your cheerleader for self-awareness and wellness.
I am, your companion and connection to the Faith Community.
I am, your partner in prayer.
I am here, in service to God, for you and for this Faith Community.
