The Institutional Membership: A Way to Partner with PCN and Invest in the Future of Pediatric Spiritual Care.
The Institutional Membership will allow PCN to sustain an ambitious expansion of its mission to provide education, research, and collaboration for chaplains throughout the nation.
The Institutional Membership offers organizations a way to signal their commitment to pediatric spiritual care and bear witness to its important contribution to patient and family-centered healthcare. Institutional Members are pioneering partners whose investment in pediatric chaplaincy assures the profession is ready to address the spiritual challenges that confront children, their caregivers, and their healthcare providers, now and in the future.
The original amount for dues to become an Institutional Member was $5,000.
