Faith Community Nursing

Sacred Heart Health System and 10 area churches are working in partnership to support volunteer nurses working to promote the health and wellness of their own church community.

Sacred Heart's Faith Community Nursing Program is available to churches of all faiths. It supports the efforts of volunteer nurses who choose to assist church members in a variety of way. Faith community nurses are state licensed RNs, often retired or semi-retired, who feel a calling to this special role.

Parish nurses do not act as home health nurses or provide hospital-style nursing care, but they may make home visits to persons with health care needs, organize a health care screening through Sacred Heart, initiate referrals to physicians or community agencies, or provide other health education or spiritual support to church members.

As a member of a church congregation, the Faith Community Nurse has the opportunity to experience the emotional, physical and spiritual needs of the congregation directly. In this setting, he/she is in a good position to know the needs of church members and to tap the resources of the hospital and the community.

Sacred Heart currently works with 10 churches that have Faith Community Nurse programs in Escambia and Santa Rosa Counties. For more information about our Faith Community Nursing program, please email Teresa Jansen at, or call 850-416-7826.
