WELSNA Goals for 2013...The future of the WELS Nurses Association holds many opportunities, and we pray the Lord will bless our efforts going forward, as He has in the past. We plan to continue to be a resource for all WELS nurses with the information on the website. We would wish to expand the information and resources available, as well as grow the database so more nurses are connected. We wish to see more engagement by the nurses within their congregations and communities. Our mission statement is, “Nurses working together as servants of Jesus Christ” and our hope is that the WELS nurses feel confident in putting that into practice. Finally, we hope to work with and support other ministries within the WELS to serve the Lord through service to his people.
