Congregational Nursing is health ministry to faith communities that focuses on the wholeness of body, mind and spirit. The congregational nurse ministry grows out of the belief that all faith communities are places of health and healing and have a role in promoting wholeness through integrating faith and health. A congregational nurse provides health promotion and outreach to a faith-based community in the context with the values, beliefs and practices of that community which they serve.
Crozer-Keystone Health System provides outreach, assistance and training to congregational nurses throughout the community that we serve. This commitment to health promotion and access to health services and resources at the community level assists the congregational nurses in connecting their parishioners to programs and services in an effort to ensure optimal community health.
