Information Request:

We would like to identify all Lutheran parish nurses working in congregations of Region Two.  Please send an e-mail with your information to Cindy and Karen so they can keep an updated list of Lutheran parish nurses in this region.

We have available money to provide displays for synod meetings if you are interested in presenting the concept of parish nursing to various groups within your synod.  Just let us know how we can help.
