As a nursing student, your educational experience is unique. You have one foot on campus and one foot in the real world of nursing. You attend demanding classes and care for sick people in clinical settings. You experience new and challenging situations as you learn to care for people from the beginning to the end of life. And you also learn to care for the whole person, paying attention to physical, social, psychological, and spiritual needs.
In this intensive learning process, you and your fellow nursing students may be seeking answers to big questions about life, suffering, death and how to offer hope to your patients.
Nurses Christian Fellowship helps you navigate these questions and find a foundation for your life and nursing practice that is centered in the love and truth of Jesus Christ.
On campus, NCF brings nursing students together in authentic communities to study the Bible, explore how to follow Jesus in life and nursing, and offer the love of Jesus to their classmates and faculty. NCF provides experiences and resources to help students grow in their faith, develop as leaders, and to view nursing from a Christian, biblical perspective. Find out more about the history and purpose of NCF.
- Be equipped with resources to help you grow spiritually. Gather your nursing friends and check out the NCF Bible studies that integrate faith with nursing practice. The spiritual care resources will help you understand and recognize spiritual needs and how to give appropriate spiritual care.
- Be engaged in actively following Jesus and being part of God’s mission on campus. NCF students are looking for more than a Christian club or support group. They want to see God transform their lives and the lives of others around them.
- Be encouraged as you and your peers go through rigorous training programs and transition into nursing practice. Join with other nursing students to explore the Bible to learn how to handle stress, care for grieving families, and much more. In your NCF group, you can pray for each other and find encouragement for all facets of your life.
