Clinical Pastoral Education (CPE)
St. Francis provides a unique learning environment for CPE interns. Ours is a regional community hospital where we treat each patient as we would our own family.
An 86-bed hospital, St. Francis is designed as an intentional healing environment where a beautiful and peaceful atmosphere is cultivated to aid in patient’s healing and to create a positive work environment for staff.
St. Francis CPE Intern ministry experiences include caring for patients in a variety of medical situations. CPE experiences, in addition to the hospital, may also include the Shakopee Women’s Prison and St. Gertrude’s Health and Rehabilitation Center
