A Vision for Nursing Students


As a new school year begins, NCF students have unique opportunities to care for others. "God has you on your campus for so much more than just your nursing education," said Renee Lick, NCF Student Ministries Director.

In the video, "A Vision for Nursing Students," Renee outlines how students can bring their friends and patients to Jesus by praying, inviting and being equipped for spiritual conversations. "Nursing students in our NCF chapters are in a strategic place to care for the spiritual needs of others and bring them to Jesus for healing." See more of Renee's vision.

Spread the word about NCF

A new semester begins! Welcome others to your NCF group with these ideas for New Student Outreach. Host an NCF table at your school of nursing or promote your group when your school introduces new students to campus organizations. Be visible so that nursing students can easily find and be connected to NCF on your campus. NCF is a ministry of InterVarsity Christian Fellowship. Watch the video, What Matters to InterVarsity.
