National Nurses Week provides natural opportunities for Christian nurses to celebrate nursing and inspire and encourage their peers and coworkers. Consider sponsoring an event, hosting a Bible discussion or meeting to pray. Ask the Lord how you can express his love and grace to the people around you. We've collected some ideas and developed a Bible discussion to complement this year's theme of Quality Patient Care and Innovation.
“As followers of Jesus in nursing, we look to God’s Word in seeking excellence and innovation in our work and personal lives,” said Bonnie Hann, NCF staff. “Paul’s prayer in Colossians 1:9-12 is full of wisdom on embracing God’s strength in all we do. As we thought about this year’s theme, it seemed to be a very appropriate Scripture text to discuss during Nurses Week.”
Visit the NCF website for more ideas on how to make the most out of National Nurses Week this year:
“As you learn more and more how God works, you will learn how to do your work. We pray that you’ll have the strength to stick it out over the long haul -- not the grim strength of gritting your teeth but the glory-strength God gives . . .” (Colossians 1:10-11, The Message).
