A multi-authored ebook, with authors and editors who are leaders in Faith Community Nursing (FCN) that aims to address modern issues in the faith-based, whole person, community-based health providing accessible, cost-effective, patient-centered care along the patient continuum while challenging contemporary health policy to include more health promotion services.

Twenty-five chapters take the reader from a basic understanding of this historic grass-roots movement to the present-day international specialty nursing practice. The ebook is structured into five sections that explain both the historical advancement of the Faith Community Nursing, its present implications, and future challenges, taking into account the perspectives of the pastor, congregation, health care system, nurse, and public health national and international organizations.

The benefits of Faith Community Nursing, (PDF) are that it is intended for a mixed audience including lay, academic, medical professionals, or health care executives. By transforming the mindset of the reader to see the nurse as more than offering illness care, the faith community as more than a place one goes to on Sunday, and health as more than physical, creative alternatives for encouraging health emerge through Faith Community Nursing.

NOTE: The product only includes the ebook Faith Community Nursing: An International Specialty Practice Changing the Understanding of Health in PDF. No access codes are included.
