Nurses Week Ideas/Activities

Use and share these free resources with nurses in your celebration of National Nurses Week!!



For the 6th year in a row – every year we have entered the competition --Journal of Christian Nursing has received top awards from the American Society of Healthcare Publication Editors, and as many or more awards than most journals. For the second year running (a new category created last year!), JCN won the Gold Award for Best Overall Use of Graphics. We won both Gold and Silver Awards for Best Opening Page or Spread. The award that excites us the most is for content – Bronze Award for Best Feature Article, The Long Journey of Alzheimer’s Disease. God gave vision for this article and we worked hard to create the piece. View all the JCN awards collection at JCN online.

Longing for Revival

Timothy Lin · Student Ministries Director

InterVarsity Christian Fellowship, which NCF is a part of, has been praying and working towards the 2030 Calling: Longing for revival, we catalyze movements that call every corner of every campus to follow Jesus. NCF plays a critical role in the 2030 Calling. Our mission and purpose is to catalyze movements that call the “nursing school” corner of campus to follow Jesus. And there are approximately 2,000 nursing school corners across the country, most of which have little to no campus witness.

Longing for revival begins with prayer. I want to invite you as a friend of NCF to pray and intercede with us. What nursing schools are near where you live? What do you imagine that revival could look like on those campuses?

As a concrete prayer tool, InterVarsity has co-sponsored the platform. If you visit the site and search for a school near where you live, you can download a prayer walk guide. Will you consider joining this nation-wide prayer movement to ensure that every campus in the U.S. has been covered in prayer this year? Thank you!
