The Baltimore-Washington Conference of The United Methodist Church offers scholarships to licensed registered nurses to complete a minimum of 34-hours continuing education Faith Community/Parish Nurse Basic Preparation Program. Support through scholarships is intended to increase the number of dedicated faith community/parish nurses.
Faith community/parish nurses have the unique opportunity to minister to the physical, emotional, and spiritual facets of individuals and families. They act as effective health advocates, health educators and counselors, referral agents, volunteer coordinators, and support group leaders. See the United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR) website for examples of faith community/parish nurse ministry.
Scholarship funds are to be used for tuition and will be paid directly to the institution. Scholarship funds are not available as reimbursement for completed courses.
