- The spiritual dimension is central to parish nursing practice.
- The parish nurse role reclaims the historic roots of professional nursing.
- The parish nurse understands health to be a dynamic process that embodies the spiritual, psychological, physical, and social dimensions of the person.
- The practice of parish nursing focuses on a faith community.
