WELS Nurses Association

The Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod Nurses Association (WELSNA)

aims to educate and support nurses, encouraging them to serve others with Christ-centered care.  It is affiliated with the Commission on Special Ministries of the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod (WELS.)  At this time our pastoral advisor is Reverend James Behringer.
Any active WELS or Evangelical Lutheran Synod (ELS) member in the nursing profession may become a member of the WELS Nurses Association.  The nursing profession is defined as RN or LPN.  Student Nurses are also welcome to become members.  At this time there are no membership dues.  A nurse simply completes the online membership form found on this website.
