Both have been certified as FCN by the NC State Board of Nursing and are excited to begin this ministry-

The mission of Faith Community Nursing is to intentionally integrate the practices of faith and nursing so that people can achieve wholeness in, with, and through the community of faith in which they serve. Throughout scripture God calls people of faith to healing.
