LCMS Health Ministry December 2016 Parish Nurse Newsletter

December 2016: This issue of the Parish Nurse Newsletter highlights ways parish nurses have reached out and served a particular population in their midst.

The population typically served by a parish nurse includes the members of a congregation or the residents living in a specific community. Within this larger population, though, smaller populations can be identified so their needs can be appropriately addressed by parish nurses.

The newsletter also includes other important information:

  • Helpful tips for supporting brothers and sisters in Christ who are facing the first Christmas without a loved one;
  • Ideas that LCMS congregations can use to make a difference in the lives of military families;
  • A list of the district parish nurse representatives; and
  • Educational opportunities and resources for parish nurses serving across the globe.
