Dr. Michelle Murphy-Rozanski Represents Holy Family University at the 2022 CICIAMS XXI World Congress of Catholic Nurses
On August 2, Michelle Murphy-Rozanski, Ph.D., MSN, RN, CRNP, associate dean and director of Undergraduate Studies in Holy Family University's School of Nursing & Health Sciences, represented the University at the 2022 International Association of Catholic Nurses (CICIAMS) XXI World Congress of Catholic Nurses at the National Shrine of Our Lady of Czestochowa in Doylestown, PA.
The World Congress of Catholic Nurses event takes place every four years and invites Catholic nurses from around the world. The event offers nurses the opportunity to gain spiritual nourishment, discuss education techniques, share dialogue, and experience professional collaboration. The last time the event was held in the United States was in 1990 in New York City.
Cardinal Peter Turkson, a Prefect of the Vatican, celebrated Mass and spoke to the nursing congress at large. Bishop Joseph Coffey, an auxiliary bishop in the Archdiocese for the Military Services, U.S.A., participated in the opening Mass and offered dialogue and discussion with the congregation of nurses.
“As a member of the National Association of Catholic Nurses, it was exciting to be a part of a discussion on current challenges faced by nurses as part of a global perspective,” said Dr. Murphy-Rozanski. “With nurses accounting for one of, if not the largest percentage of healthcare professionals worldwide, it was enlightening to network and discuss ideas on practice, education, and the direction of healthcare. Conversations are in progress to establish a student branch of the National Association of Catholic Nurses at our University to continue these important discussions.”
