Parish Nurses are Registered Nurses who undertake a certificate in Parish Nursing and are employed or appointed as a volunteer by a church or Christian organisation to lead a health ministry. Parish Nurses analyse local health needs and then focus on improving, maintaining and regaining health through education, advice, advocacy and referral.
Parish nurses work with people of all ages and backgrounds, those of any faith, or none. They are bound by the NMC Code of Conduct and will not pressurise anyone to change their religion or be involved with the church.
Parish Nurses receive independent supervision and support from Parish Nursing Ministries UK and their associated governance group.
