One of the most formative organizations during my youth and college years, InterVarsity has provided local and national resources for growth in Christian faith and understanding across all denominations and university settings for many decades. For me personally, Nurses Christian Fellowship was extremely helpful to me as a nursing student, graduate nurse, and throughout 40 plus years of nursing practice. The Journal of Christian Nursing provides excellent advice and help to nurses in all nursing fields, from practice to education and research. Through NCF and IVCF, I learned key skills in how to read and understand Scripture, develop as a leader in my profession, and integrate my faith with my professional work and identity throughout my nursing career. InterVarsity works with and supports the local churches near college campuses, and connects students nationally and internationally. As an alumna, I just recently signed up with InterVarsity Press for discounts on books and bought several to share with family and friends who have questions about their own faith. InterVarsity is the go-to organization for students and faculty who integrate personal faith and disciplines in academia. I love it!
