Journal of Christian NursingWe live in a perilous world where people are sick and depressed, the elderly are abused, and the mentally ill are ignored.  Yet God’s people are called to “Speak up and judge fairly; defend the rights of the poor and needy” (Proverbs 31:9).

Renee Teaching"This could only be God!" thought Renee Lick as she stepped into the sunlit room to speak on spiritual care to more than 220 nursing students and faculty. Renee’s workshop, “Caring for the Spiritual Needs of our Patients,” was sponsored by the College of Nursing at the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC).

Renee's Path

I love my job as the director of NCF Student Ministries, but last spring I was approaching burn-out. It had been a great year of ministry with nursing students, but I knew I needed a break. My sabbatical in May arrived just in time!

Sometimes we forget how much we need the prayer support of others.

Praying for campusesLast Monday was InterVarsity’s Day of Prayer.  We prayed by name for the NCF faculty advisors and student leaders of our chapters. Then we sent each one an email, “NCF is praying for you.”  The response was overwhelming.

Miriam RobinsonMiriam Robinson, RN, describes the spiritual needs she sees in nursing students and why she wants to be campus minister with Nurses Christian Fellowship.

the seed within usLast month I wrote that God is near to everyone, everything and everywhere; he is omnipresent. But there is an added dimension to the “everywhereness” of God.  He not only contains everything, he also penetrates everything to its deepest core.

Forget-me-notsStudents facing final exams are stressed this time of year, so no one knew how many nursing students would come to the last NCF meeting at Wichita State University.  Surprisingly, 17 students and 9 teachers arrived for the final luncheon gathering.

Nursing is ministry!

NCF Urbana 12 ExhibitAmazing! Urbana 12 can hardly be described any other way. Our outstanding NCF staff and campus volunteers planned healthcare seminars, hosted the NCF exhibit, taught seminars and guided 7 nursing students in the special Student Leaders Track.  It was a joy to meet students face-to-face and pray with them about God’s plans for their lives!
