In a world where we’re constantly flooded with much more than we can handle, may we not forget to seek something to lean on for strength and hope.

Healthcare providers – particularly nurses, can best establish a relationship with their patients by fostering a relationship with them to promote healing and wellness.

Mind-body-spirit means that wellness does not only come from physical health but mental and spiritual health, as well. And to be healthy, we should always take a look at these three aspects of our nature.

In this episode, let’s listen to the different stories of healing through spiritual and mental support with Eithne Keegan - a Faith Community Nurse serving as an RN Advocate for the Hoag Faith Community Nursing Program.
