Congregational Nursing

A congregational nurse provides health promotion and outreach to a faith-based community in context with the values, beliefs and practices of the community which they serve. Crozer-Keystone Health System provides outreach, assistance and training to congregational nurses who are able to connect their parishioners to programs and services in an effort to ensure optimal community health.
