NormanLearning to Trust God

Norman Bisda is a student leader of the NCF chapter at the University of Central Florida. “As a group, we learn how important it is to have a relationship with God on a daily basis, how to strengthen and train each other, and how to spread the Word of God to everyone,” Norman said. Nursing was not Norman’s first choice of a major. But he ambitiously fought his way into the nursing program and loves being a part of the NCF group at UCF. Here is his story.



National Nurses WeekPreparing for Nurses Week

NCF joins other nursing organizations to recognize and encourage nurses during National Nurses Week, May 6-12, 2014. This is an opportunity to introduce nurses to God’s love and healing grace. Whether small and simple, or big and elaborate, ask God to show you how you can celebrate nursing and tell others about his love. Check out NCF resources with event ideas, a Bible discussion and a prayer guide to help you engage with others about their nursing practice. Lead the way!


Seeds of HopeSeeds of Hope

Inviting nursing students to talk about the spiritual needs of patients – and themselves – is a challenge. Recently NCF staff Renee Lick gave a presentation on spiritual care to all of the senior nursing students at the University of Illinois. One student responded boldly, “I would rather ask my patients about their bowel movements than about their spiritual needs.” Find out how Renee planted Seeds of Hope.
