LEADER TRAINING EVIDENCE-BASED WORKSHOPS

Leader classes are offered to Faith Community Nurses who wish to team up with a member of their congregation to lead the 6-week workshops. For more information, call (561) 345-2006.
An Annual Spring Luncheon and Awards presentation is held each April to recognize the dedication of the nurses and volunteers in our community who inspire hope and transform lives. All proceeds benefit the work of the nurses in their outreach to the less fortunate including collaboration with a mobile medical unit, health education with disease prevention, advocacy, referrals to care, basic supplies for the underserved, homeless, elderly and homebound, bus passes and emergency assistance, and scholarships to attend the basic preparation course.
