I belong to PNA because I believe in the values of the organization and have seen the benefit to churches who endorse this type of ministry in their congregations.


I belong to PNA because the role of parish nursing is not well understood by most people in the province. This Association, as a specialty practice group under CARNA, brings legitimacy to the role and support to parish nurses throughout Alberta.


Because God called me to this position 20 years ago.


My (pastor) husband and I saw the gap between faith and health as an issue for many of our congregants and we could see that the role of the Parish Nurse was an answer.


I became part of this group to be part of a support group that is like minded especially when I am just beginning in my Parish Nursing practice.


I am a Parish Nurse because I consider it a privilege to walk alongside those within both our church and greater community.  Many individuals in our society today are lonely, depressed, and grieving.  It is a blessing to be the hands, feet, eyes and ears of Jesus, through the lens of nursing.


I belong to Parish Nursing Alberta because I want to collaborate with other parish nurses in the area and province, to be encouraged in my spiritual faith and be empowered on how I can use my faith in my own faith community to learn how to serve others. I want to meet others and feel connected to other nurses. I want to know how to advance the Parish nursing specialty and encourage other nurses to become parish nurses as well.


I belong to Parish Nursing Alberta as I cherish getting together with nurses who truly believe that spirituality is an integral aspect of health and well being.
