Faculty Advisors and NCF Student Ministry

Student and AdvisorGetting involved with NCF ministry on campus is an adventure and an opportunity to see God transform your life and the lives of those around you!

Faculty members who partner with NCF can grow spiritually as they support and encourage student leadership in the group. You will have a front row see to witness what God is doing in the lives of students in the nursing school.

Roles

NCF faculty advisors function in these roles:

  • guide and mentor student leaders of NCF chapters on campus
  • provide continuity for chapters when student leadership changes
  • serve as liaisons with the school of nursing.

Expectations

One of the most crucial roles of a faculty advisor is to ensure that  your NCF chapter remains “in good standing” with the national organization each year. Here is a brief checklist of expectations:

  • Annually confirm you are a registered student group with your college/university. (Exceptions can be made in rare circumstances where registering as a student organization is not possible.)
  • Annually complete an online NCF affiliation form with your student leader(s). We will send information about this in January.
  • Annually send to NCF a chapter member roster with updated names and email addresses so everyone in the group can start receiving  the Campus Vitals newsletter. Include contact information for at least one student leader and faculty advisor.
  • Annually complete the online chapter reports at the end of each semester. We will send the online reporting form to you approximately one month before the due date.
