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. This group of primarily volunteer nurses will advocate on behalf of those individuals referred to them by faith-based congregations, health care facilities and community partners. Faith Community Nurse Advocates will preserve the dignity of their neighbors by assisting them to make better decisions about their future health; provide them with a greater understanding of their medical condition and ways to access community resources, all with the knowledge that they are not alone.
