Stepping On Leaders

Faith Community Nurses and other health professionals have the opportunity to become Stepping On leaders at 3 workshops hosted by FCNN. Normally the cost of the course to become a leader is $650, however, with the support of a Live Well at Home Grant from the Minnesota Department of Human Services, FCNN is offering this course to the first 60 Leaders for just $50. Upcoming dates and locations of the Leader workshops are listed below. Please complete the “Leader Application” below to apply. Applications from faith community nurses are prioritized; other health professionals are welcome as space is available. Applications for the May session are due on Friday, 5/5/17. The last session in June will remain open for applications until Friday, 5/26/17.

  • May 16 – 18, 2017, 8:30 AM – 4:30 PM at Bethel Lutheran Church, Rochester
  • June 6 – 8, 2017, 8:30 AM – 4:30 PM at Woodbury Baptist Church

Each admitted Leader will receive a Stepping On kit including a training manual (>$100 value), a set of ankle weights ($40 value), hip protectors ($40 value), a customized display board promoting Stepping On, a cane & cane ice tip, grabber reacher and customized templates/teaching aids to make running the program easy.
