The June 2014 Innovations conference, hosted by the IWU School of Nursing, will be a thought-provoking event that provides inspiration and support for educators, clinicians, students, researchers and others in the nursing community. IWU School of Nursing, Nurses Christian Fellowship (NCF), Nurses Christian Fellowship International (NCFI) and the Eta Chi Chapter of Sigma Theta Tau International (STTI) co-sponsor the conference on the campus of Indiana Wesleyan University in Marion, Indiana.
Will you Pray? Will you go?
The Salvation Army and the World Health Organization (WHO) have asked the Christian Medical & Dental Associations (CMDA) to deploy a healthcare relief team to the district hospital in Baybay City on the hard hit island of Leyte in the Philippines. There is a need for nurses and CMDA has requested Nurses Christian Fellowship to help recruit nurses for this effort.
CMDA is currently assessing the needs and developing a plan of action. They need to mobilize healthcare personnel quickly. Team members will need to plan on serving for a minimum of 2 weeks and purchase their own airfare. More information is available at Global Health Outreach.
Would you pray and ask God to provide healthcare workers for this relief effort? Please ask God to care for the Filipino people in the midst of their suffering, and ask him what your role in this effort might be.

The Christian Heritage of Holistic Nursing: A vision for the future
What can we learn from this Christian heritage as we seek to practice holistic nursing in twenty first century Europe? This conference will bring together nursing researchers, educators and nurse practitioners from across the continent and beyond to explore the history, present practice and future direction of whole person nursing informed by the Christian faith and heritage in holistic care.
Papers should address one of the three themes:
the history of whole person nursing (with an especial focus on the Christian roots and development of the practice and concept),
the current practice of whole person care (with a particular focus on Christian perspectives)
reflections on new directions and innovations in practice of whole person care.
