Parish Nurse Reviews
Great information to help get a Parish Nurse set up and started.
An important book by someone who is the father of the modern Parish Nurse movement. Easy to read, and essential for anyone wanting to start a nurse program in your faith community.
I had a lot of questions about Faith Community Nursing (Parish Nurse) and this book reads like a "how to" book. Very, very helpful.
Book is useful resource for my class I am taking. I am suggesting it to others in the class to read.
Assisted me in setting up a program for our church great resource
good condition, just as described
I signed up for a Parish Nurse class and purcheased this book first. WOW! This gentleman put together what has been missing in health care for so many years, treating the person as a whole, mind,body and spirit. He then procedes to tell you how to fix the problem. Great book, I will never be without it!
