Rapha is Hebrew. It's one of God's names as found in the original text of Exodus 15:26. In the original Hebrew text it says Jehovah Rapha meaning God the Healer. Alpha and Omega, as I'm sure you know, are the first and last letters of the Greek alphabet. It has often been said that God is Alpha and Omega, beginning and end. Another way to look at that is God is the healer in all stages of the life cycle from the beginning through the end, from birth and through death. We, as nurses and nursing students, and as the NCF chapter are Jehovah Rapha's instruments in healing from the beginning and through the end of life.
Nurses Christian Fellowship
Nurses Christian Fellowship, a nondenominational organization was formed in the spring of 2001. The purpose of the organization is to provide a mechanism for fellowship among Christian nursing students and serve as a platform for prayer groups and support among students. In addition, members learn to integrate spiritual care into their nursing care.
