Nurses Christian Fellowship (NCF) began in the early 1940s when small groups of Christian nurses in several cities began meeting to pray and support each other. They began reaching out to colleagues and to nursing students on clinical rotations in their hospitals. These groups eventually joined together and became a national ministry of InterVarsity Christian Fellowship in 1948.

The purpose of the NCF, as a ministry of InterVarsity Christian Fellowship/USA, is to establish and advance in nursing, within education and practice, witnessing Calvin College nursing students and nurses who follow Jesus as Savior and Lord: growing in love for God, God's Word, God's people of every ethnicity and culture and God's purposes in the world.
