What does a Parish Nurse do?

The role of the Parish Nurse is to be an interpreter of the relationship between faith and health, to be a health educator, to be a personal health counselor, to be a referral agent and liaison with congregational and community resources, to be a health advocate and a multiplier of ministers; teacher of volunteers and developer of support groups.

A Parish Nurse is a Registered Nurse with specialized knowledge who is called to ministry and affirmed by a faith community to promote health, healing and wholeness.  The nurse is called by God to this special service. It is a step in one’s faith journey that brings the nurse to parish nursing ministry.
