Baptist Nursing Fellowship focuses on ministering to health-care professionals by supporting them professionally, spiritually, and missionally. It purposes to develop in its members a missional lifestyle—one that combines the medical field with the missions field. BNF® accomplishes these goals by equipping health-care professionals, providing them with prayer support, supplying them with resources for ministry, connecting them with other professionals, and sending them across the country and around the world.
Equipping—BNF equips its members by offering continuing education units at annual meetings. It is working to provide online CEUs in the near future.
Praying—BNF encourages prayer among members by providing a prayer calendar based on members’ birthdays. Through social media and other electronic resources, it brings together members to pray for a specific focus. Prayers often focus specifically on nurses serving in full-time missions.
