The Wisconsin Lutheran College 2017 summer online parish nurse course is now in th history books. Lisa LeBlanc, the professor teaching the course, reports that the students were from California, Nebraska and Minnesota. They learned about the role of the Parish Nurse, conducted home visits, conducted congregational needs assessments, and created a template of documents needed for their Faith Community Nurse certification (which is optional).  Keep these nurses in your prayers as they apply that knowledge and they establish a parish nurse ministry in their congregation. May both the nurses and congregations be blessed! A special thank-you to WLC for providing this opportunity! And a big thank-you to Christian Aid & Relief for the matching funds grant to help with tuition costs!

A limited number of $450 grants toward tuition are available upon request and will be paid upon completion of the course. What a wonderful opportunity!
