Nurses Serving Our Neighbors (NSON) are Faith Community Nurse Advocates that are providing "wholistic" (body, mind, spirit) health promotion and care for individuals within their community. We are a group of volunteer nurses and other medical professionals, active or retired, that advocate medically for the more vulnerable in our community. It is a case-by-case basis with individuals that are isolated in the community with opportunities to volunteer at the local men's shelter helping with blood pressure clinics and medication reconciliation clinics monthly, as well as individual home visits.
