Faith Community Nurse Program
Nursing that combines the physical and spiritual aspects of good faith within a faith community
Ballad Health Faith Community Nurse Program works with individual congregations to help people religions communities:
- Improve their health
- Prevent illness and injury
- Ease suffering associated with any health crisis
The community faith nurse acts as counselor, educator and healthcare provider by identifying needs of the congregation, coordinating health screenings, providing educational programs, supplying health literature and referring congregants to supportive health services where appropriate.
Also, the community faith nurse maintains an active visitation program to parishioners who are homebound, hospitalized or in nursing homes.
Currently, there are dozens of churches in Northeast Tennessee and Southwest Virginia that are serviced by the Ballad Health parish nurse program.
