Parish Nurse Program
Island Parish Nurses focus on wellness and disease prevention using
a whole-person, (body, mind, and spirit), approach to health care.
We define health as integrated wholeness and harmony with self,
others, the environment, and God.
We are professional nurses who use advanced knowledge and
skills to promote wellness and optimal health and healing in
individuals, families and the faith community. The promotion of
wellness is carried out by educating the congregation and community,
by raising the consciousness level of the parish community, and by
fostering an understanding of the interrelation of lifestyle,
personal habit, attitude, and faith in the creation of well-being.
The Parish Nurse is also a health counselor. Some examples of
where we counsel are: for personal health problems; recommending
medical intervention; explaining medications. Other
responsibilities include: making home, hospital, and nursing
home visits; conducting health screenings; and, counseling about
nutrition and exercise.
The Parish Nurse is a facilitator and teacher of volunteers.
They recruit, train, and supervise volunteers who help the nurse
within the congregation and the community.
The Parish Nurse is a liaison and referral source for community
resources. As there are many intricacies within the health care
system, the Parish Nurse can assist with: health care provider
referrals; federal, state or community agency guideline interpretation; the arrangement for home health care;
nursing home placement; legal or financial counsel for parishioners.
Parish Nurses are interpreters of the relationship between
faith and health. They understand the key elements of a healing
ministry - prayer, laying on of hands,
anointing with oil, Holy Communion and other Sacraments of the
church. Parish Nurses serve as a link between the message that we
are loved by God - with the message that - God's grace frees us, to be
loved by self and others.
