Faith Community Nurses On Social Media!

I’m just so excited about health ministry right now, that I have to share it!


As you probably know, I am very passionate about using social media to empower parish/faith community nursing!  Since I wrote these blogs in November 2014, the online world of parish/faith community nursing has transformed! And from where I sit, here at my screen, the sky is the limit for where we go next!

Today, I searched on Facebook for “parish nursing”and “faith community nursing” and I was amazed and SO happy to see many pages, communities, and groups that I did not find in my past searches! I saw our smiling faces in photos of the Westberg Symposium this past week. I saw the many health messages and conversations that our ministries are sharing online.  I saw photos of health ministry events, programs, and community outreach that we are doing.  You can see them too, here (go to the liked by this page section)!

THIS is how we can remain connected with our faith communities and wider communities! We can share our messages of health and wholeness online, and spread the message out through our social networks.

THIS is how we can network with each other to share ideas, resources, successes, and continue to build up the practice of health ministry with best practices!  Did you know an online journal for FCN was launched in the past month?  You can read it here!

THIS is how we can raise awareness of other healthcare providers, faith communities, and the public about what we do!

If you know of a parish/faith community nursing or health ministry social media site, PLEASE share it here…and there, and everywhere!  Use the comments section below.

The more people in a community who can understand a particular fact, method, or story, the likelier it is that those people will be able to work together to make use of those bits of knowledge. ~Clay Shirky

This is an exciting time as our online presence grows and blossoms to reveal the beauty of health ministry to the world through social media channels!  Keep up the great work!
