Nurses Christian Fellowship, an arm of InterVarsity Christian Fellowship, is one of a kind. It is an organization dedicated to walking alongside nurses and nursing students as they intersect their faith and their vocation. Now that school is back in session, NCF is in stages of new student outreach.
“This is my favorite time of year…welcoming new students to campus and to their nursing program. It’s our critical time of the year to reach them and welcome them and invite them into Nurses Christian Fellowship. We’ll have tables [and] we’ll have outreach events where students will be inviting them into a community,” Jen Wojtysiak says.
“It’s busy, it’s full. It’s wonderful as we see nursing students take risks for Jesus, and invite their classmates to come and explore who He is, and what it means to be a nurse that follows Jesus.”

NCF holds regular Bible studies for nursing students as well as for nurses. Nurses deal with a range of physical, emotional, and spiritual challenges daily. NCF provides a space for nurses to rest in Jesus, find community, and prepare for challenging work. But it is also a great place for nurses to look at their work through a Biblical perspective.
“Nursing is a deeply sacred work of caring for [the] body and mind and spirit. But it’s also taxing as they are pouring out physically and emotionally and spiritually. And Jesus can be there with them,” Wojtysiak says.
