We are looking for people who are interested in helping us to build this ministry in the Church of the Nazarene. If that is you, please go to the membership page and send us your information.

How did Parish Nursing originate? Parish Nursing was begun in 1984 by Dr. Granger Westberg. Westberg observed that by overlooking the relationship between spiritual well-being and physical health, patients were deprived of full-patient care. Westberg invited nurses to serve as a bridge between the faith community and the medical community. The parish nurse might best be described as a community-based nurse whose population is the local congregation.
