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.

Christian Aid and Relief currently has two opportunities for nurses to serve.
They need nurses who would be able to provide first aid to those doing manual labor to help rebuild the churches and communities in Panama City, Florida (through December) and in Puerto Rico (through April). Travel, lodging, and food will be provided, what they ask of you is to provide your nursing skills! If you would choose to participate in the manual labor, you may, but it is not required. If you are interested in serving those who were impacted by the recent hurricanes, please consider filling out the volunteer form on Christian Aid and Relief's website.
