Abstract

ABSTRACT: The caregiving role of parish nurses extends to multiple settings including family, church, community, and secular employment. A lack of personal boundaries combined with the wholistic nature of parish nursing can produce caregiver role strain. Examining the life of Jesus reveals a pattern of intentional self-care practices that are a model for parish nurses.
