As NCF director, I’m challenged to think through the relational piece of NCF. Why do we have a “fellowship” for Christian nurses? Is it possible that our fellowship, spread over thousands of miles, could “encourage one another and build each other up” (1 Thessalonians 5:11)?

This perspective teaches us how to see and think about people and thus how to care for patients and their families and collaborate with our co-workers.

Meet the new director of Nurses Christian Fellowship!

Kathy Schoonover-Shoffner, PhD, RN, didn’t plan on being a nurse until she worked in a hospital as a high school senior and was captivated by the life-giving power of the nurse-patient relationship.

7122016patNurses Christian Fellowship has been an integral part of my life since nursing school when I was introduced to Jesus Christ and began to understand my need for a personal relationship with him.

That was nearly 45 years ago and my relationship to Jesus Christ has grown and flourished, largely due to the training and mentoring I received from NCF staff in the formative years of my walk with Christ.
