Faith Community Nursing
The West Virginia University School of Nursing offers a Faith Community Nursing course for those individuals interested in helping to address the unique needs of faith-based organizations. The professional practice of faith community nursing focuses on the intentional care of the spirit as part of the process of promoting holistic health and preventing or minimizing illness in a faith community.
This online course is designed to review, expand, and update the practitioner’s knowledge of pharmacology and pharmacotherapeutics. The approach is to teach at the conceptual level by incorporating overviews of underlying disease processes and reviews of pharmacological principles into discussions of available therapeutic agents and the rationale for their use.
