While a professional chaplain is the spiritual care specialist on the interdisciplinary health care team, there is growing recognition that delivery of spiritual care requires the participation of nurses, social workers and other team members as spiritual care generalists. Nurses and social workers receive little or no professional education training in spiritual care yet they say they very much want it.

Therefore, HealthCare Chaplaincy Network (HCCN) and the Spiritual Care Association (SCA) have created these two opportunities to raise nurses' and social workers' spiritual care knowledge and delivery:
The first opportunity is four online courses through the Spiritual Care Association's Foley Learning Center:
Each course was written by a subject-matter expert, uses a state-of-the-art learning management system, is self-directed and can be taken at your own pace, and upon completion earns one a certificate of completion and continuing education hours.
Learn more about the spiritual care generalist courses for nurses, for social workers and the Foley Learning Center on our website. The fee for each course is $295 for SCA members and $495 for non-members. 
Learn about all the benefits of SCA's annual membership for health care professionals.
Earning the first-of-its kind Certificate as a Spiritual Care Generalist is the other learning opportunity for nurses and social workers who attend this preeminent, multidisciplinary professional education opportunity in spiritual care and meet the requirements:

For those of you who are not a nurse or social worker, I ask that you forward this to those whom you know to inform them of these learning opportunities that so many of them say they desire.
