National Nurses Week

National Nurses Week 2018Every year, National Nurses Week provides natural opportunities for Christian nurses to be a source of inspiration and encouragement for their nurse peers and coworkers. Whether you’re sponsoring an event, hosting a Bible discussion or meeting to pray, consider how the Lord wants to express his love and grace to the people around you.

We’ve collected some ideas and put together a brief Bible discussion on this year's theme.
