Parish Nursing is a unique, specialized practice of professional nursing that focuses on the promotion of holistic health in a faith community, such as a church, synagogue, or mosque. Parish Nursing ministers to the needs of the individual, the family and the community the church serves. The Parish Nurse serves within the context of the values, beliefs and practices of the faith community and in accord with its mission and ministry. Parish Nursing integrates education, advocacy and referrals with the gift of healing presence, which is the condition of being consciously and compassionately in the present moment with another. Healing presence affirms an individual's potential for wholeness, regardless of their life circumstances. Click here to read the latest Parish Nurse newsletter on Breast Cancer awareness.
