FAITH COMMUNITY NURSING
The Murphy Medical Center family believes that nurturing a healthy body means balancing physical, mental and spiritual well-being as a whole.
The Faith Community Nursing Ministry encourages nurses to advocate within their church congregations, tapping into the diverse needs of faith communities in the region.
Licensed registered nurses work on a volunteer basis as church-friendly educators to address disease prevention and start dialogues about healthy living. Each faith community nurse works within his or her church, combining professional experience with personal spiritual ministry.
The program is a recognized specialty practice with certified volunteer nurses that minister to the physical, emotional and spiritual health of the area. They serve as liaisons for the hospital to surrounding communities and act as a referral source for their fellowships.
