Parish Nurse Education

    Lee Memorial Health System has sponsored the Foundations for Faith Community Nurse Course since year 2000 and is an educational partner with the International Parish Nurse Resource Center, at The Church Health Center in Memphis, TN.

    The content of this curriculum is core to the educational preparation of Parish Nurses comprising 40 credit hours. It focuses on the concepts of spiritual formation, professionalism, leadership and community. It also emphasizes theological concepts to reclaim the spiritual dimension of nursing.

Participants attending this course will be able to:

  • Embrace the integration of faith and health as central to the parish nurse role.
  • Demonstrate knowledge, attitude and skills to practice as a beginning parish nurse.
  • Value and inter-collegial peer system of support.
    Identify a network for continuing development and support.
  • Commit to continued spiritual formation to more effectively understand and carry out the parish nurse role.

    Since 2000, we have offered this course annually in beautiful Southwest Florida. The RN's who took our course are now serving as Parish Nurses in their home states including: Florida, Texas, Louisiana, North Carolina, Maine, Virginia, Washington and Georgia.
