Registered nurses of all faiths are able to earn 36.5 CE hrs while attending the Carle Foundations of Faith Community Nursing training course. Faith Community Nurses draw a closer link between their faith and healthcare communities by acting as health educators and counselors to faith community members, assisting with the homebound, nursing home, and hospitalized congregation members. Through this nondenominational program, participating registered nurses receive continuing education hours, as well as the support and resources necessary to implement a Faith Community Nursing program in their own congregation.

This session will be facilitated by Angel Harris, MSN, RN, Racial Equity Consultant and will be IN PERSON ONLY.
Health disparities are health differences that negatively affect specific population groups. These are groups who have experienced obstacles to quality health care due to discrimination or exclusion based on ethnicity, socioeconomic status, or other factors. According to the Healthy People 2030 document, "Our goal in the U.S. is to eliminate health disparities or health inequities by expanding access to health care for vulnerable and at-risk populations." Nurses play a significant role in addressing social determinants of health, working towards health equity, and providing culturally competent care which can improve health outcomes. Please join us as we explore the importance of cultural competency and health equity in nursing. At the end of the session, attendees should be able to:
1. Define and understand concepts of culture, cultural awareness, cultural humility, and cultural competency.
2. Understand the link between social determinants of health and health outcomes.
3. Identify barriers to cultural competence and health equity.
We are applying for two hours of nursing CEUs and can be used to meet the Oregon State Board of Nursing cultural competency training requirement.
