Prepare for Nurses Week 2017

Vital Signs

Dear NCF Leaders,

Thank you for serving as a leader of an NCF group! We value the time and effort you provide so that nurses in your area can gather together and be encouraged, equipped and empowered for serving Christ in nursing.

National Nurses WeekHow is your NCF group celebrating National Nurses Week? You may or may not have special plans, but this year’s theme, “Nursing: The Balance of Mind, Body and Spirit,” provides natural opportunities for Christian nurses to discuss God’s view of holistic health.

Here are some tips and resources you can forward to the members of your group to take advantage of this special week and encourage them in their faith and nursing practice.

Nurses Week Bible Discussion

We’ve created a special Bible study on this year’s theme for you and your group members to download and use for a group study or personal devotional. Invite your nurse friends and coworkers to explore how Jesus defined health in body, mind and spirit. We offer this Scriptural meditation for your reflection on what it means to love God, love others, and love yourself.

NCF Resources

See all the special resources, prayer guides, and promotional materials for ideas on how members of your group can maximize Nurses Week.


Some NCF groups are getting an early start by hosting gatherings in their area this week. Check out some of these NCF events and pray that people will be drawn to the living God and healthier lives through these special gatherings.
