Faith Community Nursing

Faith Community Nursing

Historically, there has been a blending of physical, mental and spiritual approaches to health and healing. Early civilizations turned to spiritual leaders, elders and others known for their ability to heal. The Old and New Testaments are filled with references to healing, and healing was central to Jesus’ ministry.

Faith Community Nurses

One of the most proven and promising way to reduce the disparities in inadequate healthcare that lead to premature death is — home visits by nurses.  Faith Community Nurses visit residents who attend our free medical and dental clinics to:

  • Assist with navigating the health care system
  • Blood drives
  • Blood pressure with emphasis on education and referral
  • Chronic disease education
  • Health and wellness education and promotion for all ages
  • Health fairs and clinics
  • Grief support
  • Mental health assessment and referrals
  • Nutrition counseling and weight loss education
  • Parenting classes
  • Visiting the sick and homebound

Our partnership with Norton Healthcare offers professional nurses CEUs for attending our trainings and events.  Our next Scheduled Training is June 26th at 1pm.  This next training is hosted at Sojourn Community Church located at 1207 S. Shelby Street, Louisville, KY 40203.
