The congregation of Northminster Presbyterian Church is blessed with an outstanding Faith Community Nursing program, formerly known as Parish Nursing. Faith Community Nursing is a, “unique specialized practice of professional nursing that focuses on the promotion of health and wellness within the context of the values, beliefs and practices of a faith community”. Here at Northminster, we have chosen to re-name our ministry but continue to refer to the nurses who serve the congregation as Parish Nurses.
As members of the ministerial team, Parish Nurses offer spiritual care and support through prayer, biblical references, active listening, affirmation, encouragement and congregational care. As teachers and health counselors they help individuals or groups explore ways to cope more effectively with health and wellness concerns. The can also serve as a referral resource person to provide reliable links to community, state and federal healthcare resources
