This self-study course is designed for establishing a faith community nursing practice.

Practice models are described, fund-raising ideas given; working documents, planning strategies, and problem-solving scenarios are offered. It is a reflective and strategizing course complete with an Operations Manual. The health promotion course book for congregants entitled What It Really Means to be Healthy completes the set for a successful practice establishment.
