The Faith Community Nursing (FCN) Council is a structural unit of the North Carolina Nurses Association (NCNA). NCNA membership is a prerequisite to council membership and participation in council activities at all levels. Participation at executive committee level of the council requires the individual is currently practicing as a FCN or FCN program coordinator.
