Parish Nurse

As a parish nurse, you will blend your medical knowledge with your spiritual beliefs. Central to a parish nurse's work is the idea that faith is important to total healing. Parish nurses do not simply rely on prayer, but rather believe that a patient's spiritual strength will support them through the medical tests and treatments they face. It is your responsibility as a parish nurse to help the patient understand the medical side, and comfort them through the spiritual side. Rather than working in a hospital, as a parish nurse, your healing skills will be around a specific congregation or community.
