What Is A Parish Nurse?
Parish nurses are faith-oriented registered nurses, who have received special education and training in holistic health care. Parish nurses have skills in teaching and health counseling, as well as knowledge of community resources. As a member of a church staff, the parish nurse promotes wellness within the congregation, enhances the church's outreach ministry, and strengthens the awareness of the connection between faith and health.
