Understanding the role of faith and spirituality in forming a healthy community, Bon Secours Health System has created partnerships with professional nurses, health ministers and faith communities to form Faith Community Health Ministries. Ministry partners extend the healing ministry of faith community nursing through promotion of whole-person health often acting as health educators, personal health counselors, referral agents, support group leaders, health advocates, volunteer coordinators, and advocates for social justice.
Susan Saunders is a retired nurse, who is part of the Bon Secours Hampton Roads parish ministry. Mutual of Omaha recently interviewed Susan about her work in the ministry for their “AHA Moment” campaign. Talking with Susan she told us that she feels the need to spread the message: “I feel very strongly about our Parish Nurse Ministry and when Mutual Of Omaha Insurance Company was interested in hearing about it I was interested in telling.”
If you have a question about faith community nursing, parish or faith community nurse training, our many programs and services in your area, or in an area where a friend or relative may live, our program would love to hear from you!
