Faith Community Nurse Foundations Course

Mercy Care for the Adirondacks will be offering the Foundations of Faith Community Nursing course this spring in Ogdensburg, NY.  I invite you to consider becoming a Faith Community Nurse.  

Faith Community Nurses (also called Parish Nurses) are registered nurses that provide health education and counseling, serve as patient advocates and connect patients to resources in the community.  They care for the whole person, body, mind and spirit - with a particular focus on the spiritual. Click on the link at the bottom to see the course flyer for more information on how this will prepare nurses and health ministers for service in their church or community.

There is no charge for the course.  Registration is required. Course size is limited. If you are planning to participate, please register early or let me know with a phone call (518-523-5582) or e-mail me at  In this time of COVID-19, we will adhere to the guidelines on social distancing and face coverings.

I look forward to seeing you in April in Ogdensburg!
