Jan Erlenbaugh Gaddis

In the world of faith-based nursing, Jan Erlenbaugh Gaddis is a pioneer. Since 1996, she has worked as a parish nurse at St. Francis Hospitals in Indianapolis. By combining a practice of faith and nursing, Jan is able to help those in need work towards healing on a holistic level.

Since completing her nursing education, Jan continues to be a student of life, always being open and willing to learn from those around her. As Jan progresses into the new chapters of her life, she is constantly reminded of the lesson and mystery of letting go. It is clear to see how this idea has manifested itself in Jan’s life. She comments, “Only when we truly let go can things open up so much more. If we are continually clinging to the things around us, then how can new things happen? Therefore, I practice the mystery of letting go, of stepping back.”

Jan’s beautiful story is detailed in “Women as Healers: Voices of Vibrancy.”
