About FCNI

Faith Community Nurses International (FCNI) is a membership association that represents the interests of faith community nurses by providing nursing education and practice resources - including the on-line, peer-reviewed International Journal of FCN - to promote optimal health outcomes for the individuals and communities they serve. Our RN members teach, manage, and practice faith community nursing, and are leaders in nursing education and research in faith community nursing.

Our History

In August 2013, a group of six Faith Community Nurses (FCNs) from the Faith Community Nurse Network of the Greater Twin Cities gathered at Charlson Meadows in Victoria, MN to discuss forming a global membership association for FCNs. FCNI was incorporated in Minnesota under the leadership of Beverly Siegrist, Chair, Andrea West, Vice-Chair, and Wanda Alexander, Secretary-Treasurer. Members were recruited and bylaws were adopted. A full Board was appointed to continue development and planning in October 2015.
