Parish Nurse News

Also called “Faith Community Nursing”, this is a specialized practice of nursing which promotes understanding of whole person (mind, body, and spirit) health and wellness, and  provides disease prevention services. There is an emphasis on spiritual care. These services are provided by a registered nurse with educational preparation in wholistic ministry, and who provides health promotion services within a faith community. The goal of the Faith Community Nurse is to assist individuals in gaining optimal mental,  physical, and spiritual health by complementing the ministry provided by our pastor and other lay ministers.
