Westberg Symposium 2019

Monday, April 8, 2019, 5:00 PM

Westberg Symposium for Faith Community Nursing In These Times: Serving through Adversity April 8 - 10, 2019 First Baptist Broad Church Memphis, TN   Welcome to the 2019 Westberg Symposium! We invite you to attend the 2019 Westberg Symposium April 8 - 10, 2019 in Memphis, Tennessee. Over the years, the Westberg Symposium has become the premier gathering and networking event for faith community nurses from across the globe. Participants develop supportive connections and gain new ideas and skills as distinguished speakers share techniques and experiences for the benefit of the professional practice. Recent natural and human-caused disasters and events across the US and globally present new challenges in traumatic events, creating community unrest in their wake. To be successful in helping communities face such devastation, FCNs need to be innovative leaders and strategic beacons of hope.  The symposium is the ideal place for FCNs, along with others, to share their experiences, latest approaches, and best practices to plan, prepare, and respond to community and individuals. The symposium includes subject matter that helps FCNs address challenges in communities. Examples of subjects include the impact of FCNs providing transitional care during crisis, persevering in the practice during adversity, and unique ways FCNs can serve in the wake of tragedy. Attendees can register for training sessions offered before the symposium, hear distinguished speakers for keynotes—including best-selling author Philip Yancey—and participate in peer-led meetings like the coordinators breakfast, educators training, and the World Forum gathering of international FCNs. A wide variety of opportunities will happen at the symposium in 2019, so you will have a lot to look forward to learning and growing!     Please Note:  - Special Preconference Session: 2019 Faith Community Nurse Research Forum [Sponsored by Faith Community Nurse International (FCNI)] You must register for the research forum at FCNI website.  Click here.    - By registering for the Westberg Symposium and other Westberg Institute educational courses, both live and/or via technology, you are giving the Westberg Institute registrar and CNE Provider Unit permission to share your name and registration information within the organization.
