What NCF LovesWhat NCF Loves

Take a close look at our NCF logo. See the four hearts? They symbolize love for God, love for God’s Word, love for God’s people of every ethnicity and culture, and love for God’s purposes in the world. Every NCF member receives a logo pin that supports our common purpose of representing Christ’s love in our nursing practice. If you are not member, join the NCF professional network of Christian nurses that supports you—and your faith! Become a member of NCF today. Let’s share the love!

Why Suffering?Why Suffering?

It seems the more valid question is: How do we cope with suffering? Read more from Kathy Schoonover-Shoffner, NCF National Director.

From the HeartFrom the Heart

When have you experienced a tender moment as a nurse, or sensed God’s loving embrace in a hard situation? We’ve collected short stories from nurses that communicate the heart of compassionate nursing and God’s care. Be inspired with our “From the Heart” Topical Collection of articles from Journal of Christian Nursing. JOIN NCF and receive free access to all articles from JCN.

National Nurses WeekBalancing Mind, Body, and Spirit

JUST ANNOUNCED: This year’s theme for National Nurses Week (May 6–12) is “Nursing: The Balance of Mind, Body, and Spirit.” What Scripture verses come to mind when you think about this topic? We’re preparing a Bible study on this theme and we’d love to hear your ideas now! Email NCF with your thoughts on this theme. ANA has designated 2017 as the "Year of the Healthy Nurse" so let’s do our part as Christians to lead the way toward holistic health—God’s shalom for us all.
