Parish nurses are persons of faith who are experienced registered nurses, and who have received special education in holistic health care. They have skills in teaching and health counseling as well as knowledge of community resources. The Valley Parish Nurses serve as coordinators between the clergy, parish and resources in the community, such as hospitals and other social service agencies.

Our Parish Nurse program also serves as the hub of many of Griffin Hospital’s outreach activities, including fitting bike helmets, training adults and children in CPR, and providing health education and information at senior centers, shopping centers, neighborhoods, companies, and community events and fairs.

Why a Parish Nurse Program?

Having a qualified, registered nurse on the parish staff can enhance the Church’s efforts to integrate Whole Person Health into its congregation. The parish nurse can assist those in need of healing and convey the parish’s concerns for its parishioners.
