    Beyond Four Walls / About Parish Nursing


    "A vast amount of energy is spent in healthcare today reacting to medical crises and emergencies, taking care of illnesses which were poorly managed or those which could've been prevented. The prognosis for healthcare in our nation is poor."
    Candace Huber, Director FL Hospital Parish Nurse Institution


    "Parish Nursing provided an opportunity for my hospital to reach out into the community and make a difference in peoples' lives and to impact their health status long before they had a need for hospitalization."
    Thomas L. Werner, President/CEO Adventist Health System

    I'm interested in parish nursing and would love to learn more about it! I am an RN and have been interested in community nursing in a faith-based setting for quiet sometime. I just viewed the video and am excited to hear more!

    Thanks for your help!

    Yes, I am a parish nurse and have been doing this for many years. I am connected to and employed by a health system, which is where I received my training.

    If you are interested in becoming a parish nurse, I suggest to first find out if there are any parish nurses in your area. You can probably use the internet to do a search. Many times parish nurses are connected to an institution, such as a hospital or health system.

    Parish nurse classes are offered by many universities/colleges as well as health institutions. The International Parish Nurse Resource Center has a list of some of these classes. But there are many others available as well.
