Faith Community Nursing Makes a Difference!

A growing body of research continues to support the impact of faith community nursing on health. An exciting fact is that simple, doable, inexpensive interventions by FCNs make a difference! JCN regularly receives studies showing that 4-6 week interventions of one-time weekly classes significantly lower B/P, lower blood sugar, take off weight, and help people start exercising. 

Take a look at our FCN Continuing Education ​and Health Ministry Best Practices collections, and discover how easy it can be to change lives!
