VISION

MISSION

To communicate a caring presence locally, regionally, and statewide while preserving, supporting, and advancing the professional practice of faith community nursing.

RECENT MEETINGS

The format of the Wisconsin Faith Community Nurse Coalition monthly meetings (ZOOM calls) recently changed.  We still meet via ZOOM (or phone) on the first Monday of the month, but we begin each meeting with a READI (“READI: Resources, Education, Assessment, Development and Issues”) presentation.  This is a 15-20 minute presentation on a specific topic, followed by general updates and news related to FCN education and practice.  At this time, CNE credit is not offered for presentations provided during the monthly meetings, but if there is interest, this can be explored.

Our meeting calendar for 2021 is below.  Resources shared, if available, will be posted after the meeting date.
