Nurse Healer

  1. I often search for what is new in Parish Nursing. This has long been a dream of mine. To keep it in my thoughts, to dream of to accomplish my goal, and to share with my colleagues; I am posting this following website with it's many tid bits of information and links:

    Parish Nursing
    Congregations have been promoting health and wholeness for centuries through worship, music, sharing and caring. A new dimension is the addition of a registered nurse to the ministry team. The nurse assists members of the congregation to become more aware of their health and move toward a fuller sense of wholeness.

    Parish Nursing is a healing ministry that responds to the health and wellness needs of church members through a holistic approach--body, mind and spirit.

    Hi Nightngale,

    I too plan to become a Parish Nurse one of these days. The cost of the course is above our budget right now, but will definitely sign up as soon as I can afford to. A friend of mine is starting a Parish Nurse Course here in San Antonio on Monday. The course runs for one week, and 40 credit hours are given at the end of the course. Thanks for taking the time to share all that information with us. (((hugs)))

    Interesting Renee, I wonder what the courses are that they teach? The expense and time on school for this is not part of my goal at this time. I really would love to find a program existing or devise one (now isn't that brave).

    There is no program in my area or state that I know of. At this point, I am trying to nestle in with a regualr church and look at the volounteer services and what they offer. That is where I invision starting out.

    Thank you for the hug.
