Parish (faith community) nursing

More properly known as faith community nursing, parish nursing is an established nursing specialty approved by the American Nurses Association. There is no official Church of the Brethren parish nursing program. However, a number of Church of the Brethren churches have faith community nurses. Judith Wallace, faith community nurse at West York Church of the Brethren has offered to answer questions about faith community nursing.
