    Parish nursing is not a masters level nursing, it is a certificate program that usually is offered by community colleges to the RN population. Check the internet though....

    I have never heard of Parish Nursing, but after reading several threads and post, I must say that I am impressed.

    I think it's a wonderful thing to apply your skills to various ministries!

    I too am interested in the role of the Parish nurse and what a fulfilling method in growing one's own sprituality and mission to nursing. My question:what have some of you found to be the most vulnerable populations in your parishes and how have you met those challenges?
    Thanks so much-Garnett

    Hello Garnett and welcome to allnurses and the Parish Nurse Forum.
    Most of my time as a Parish Nurse is spent ministering to the elderly in my congregation meeting their physical, spiritual, and emotional needs through hospital/home visitation, health and social agency referrals, education, health screenings, health counseling, etc. I would be glad to answer any further questions. You may post them here or you may pm me.

    Would nuns in Catholic Healthcare settings be considered "Parish Nurses" or is this a speciality for which you have to have specific training in?

    Just curious.

    Though I'm not interested in becoming a Parish Nurse, I am interested to learn about all the different aspects of nursing positions/specialities.

    Thanks!

    Most Parish Nurses are RN's who have received specific training.
