Currently, there is not a program in my parish but they would like one? Where do I start? There are several RN's in our parish, I have not reached out for volunteers at this time as we dont even have this program yet? Where do I start in getting this going?

I see some places actually pay a director to plan this for their churches. I am in a catholic church.

Hello ladies, have either of you taken the Faith Community Nursing Course? I too am Catholic and will hope to be implementing a parish nurse program at my church in the coming months.
