The Parish Nurse Educator is an extension of our Pastoral Care Ministry here at The Lutheran Church of the Holy Spirit. The focuses of the position are upon education, support and pastoral care. To coordinate our Pastoral Care efforts our Nurse Educator meets with the pastors weekly discussing needs of members of the congregation. The Parish Nurse Educator is an advisory member of the Spiritual Support Team along with the pastors and trained lay persons.

The overall responsibilities of the Parish Nurse Educator include reaching out to individuals and families who are trying to cope with ongoing health situations and are in need of support. Much of the Parish Nurse Educator’s time is spent discussing health related questions posed by our members, distributing and discussing health information related to specific problems with which the individual and family are trying to deal.
Post acute illness follow-up is carried out by telephone calls and hand written notes.
