Value and Meaning of Faith Community Nursing: Client and Nurse Perspectives

Mock, Gabrielle Sheridan

Journal of Christian Nursing . 34(3):182-189, July/September 2017.

ABSTRACT: The literature that supports and describes faith community nursing (FCN) practice is extensive, but limited in describing the value and meaning of FCN to the community. A qualitative investigation of one FCN program led to emergence of five themes that illustrate the perceived importance of FCN to this community: tasks and services offered, nursing expertise, spirituality, familiarity, and community support. This exploration reveals the deeper value and meaning of FCN to the communities these nurses support.
