Faith Community Nurse
Sandra Wright, R.N.
SO WHAT IS A FAITH COMMUNITY NURSE?
A faith community nurse is a Registered Nurse who serves a faith community, sometimes called a parish nurse. There are nurses working in Christian churches of every denomination, in synagogues, temples and mosques. The modern parish nurse model was pioneered by a Lutheran pastor working in Illinois, the Rev. Dr. Granger Westberg.
First and foremost, the parish nurse is a resource. She is an advocate: for better health and for a patient-centered approach to healthcare. She is an educator: answering questions and promoting healthy choices. She is a bridge: helping to link the promise of science with the power of faith.
Stop by room 18 between services 10:00-10:30 on Communion Sunday and meet our Parish Nurse, Sandra Wright! I’m happy to check your blood pressure, answer questions or just listen. I’ll also pray with you if you’d like. Completely free and completely confidential.
The nurse’s phone number is 860.535.2709.
