Alberta Association for Parish Nursing Ministries - Who We Are


What is Parish Nursing?
A parish nurse is a
registered nurse with
specialized knowledge
who is called to ministry
and affirmed by a faith
community to promote
health, healing and wholeness.


Rooted in the vision of Christ as
Healer, this ministry grows out of
the belief that all faith communities are places of health and healing, and have a role in promoting wholeness through the integration of faith and health. (www.capnm.ca Downloaded June 28/12).
