What do parish nurses do?

Parish nurses serve as teachers and health counselors and can explore ways for us to cope more effectively with physical problems,

stressful life transitions, and signs and symptoms that need to be taken seriously. Parish nurses bring their faith and an understanding of Jesus' healing ministry into their work and demonstrate the concern God has for our spiritual and physical wholeness. Parish nurses are not home health nurses and do not provide hands-on care. They are not social service caseworkers but can help church members access needed community care. Parish nurses are not psychiatric counselors but they can listen and guide church members through the maze of mental health provider services. Parish nurses cannot make medical diagnoses or recommend prescriptions. They can interpret medical language, explain a diagnosis, and help church members communicate more effectively with their doctors. Parish Nursing and Health Care Ministries of St. Peters Episcopal Church-We provide educational programs, monthly blood pressure screenings-the 3rd Sunday of the month, and all of the assistance mentioned above.
