Welcome to the Parish Nurse Network of Kankakee River Valley
Welcome to the Parish Nurse Network of Kankakee River Valley (PNN of KRV). We are a nonprofit organization of Parish Nurses in our area. In addition to providing regular support to each other, we offer educational programs to new and established Parish Nurses.
In 2012, The American Nurses Association published a revision of the Scope and Standards of Practice for Faith Community Nursing. The name Faith Community Nursing was used to encompass any nurse working within a faith community. We have chosen to use Parish Nursing as our name since historically this name has been used since the early 1980s. Many Parish Nurses are beginning to adopt the Faith Community Nursing (FCN) and either name is applicable to the role.
The PNN of KRV is affiliated with the International Parish Nurse Resource Center which is a part of the Church Health Center in Memphis, TN. For more information about Parish Nursing go to the Links page and visit the Church Health Center and International Parish Nurse Resource Center sites.
