Review for NORTHWEST PARISH NURSE MINISTRIES, Portland, OR, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

I became involved with NWPNM as an instructor of the beginning parish nurse courses. I have also attended national conference once. This organization empowers nurses to provide faith based nursing care to their faith communities. The recipients of this care are assured that the care is supported by their faith beliefs. The nurses can also provide explanations of the care needed and offer spiritual support. Training of volunteers from the faith community is also part of a parish nurse's role. These volunteers are able to reach out to those who may be lonely or have other needs. Nurses provide health promotion information such as how to manage administration of multiple medications, management of stress, and blood pressure control. They may also do helmet fittings, provide information about immunizations, and promote exercise through walking groups.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Creating an opportunity for nurses to make a difference in their faith communities
