Taylor’s E P Wahl Centre has announced the launch of a new initiative, the Parish Nursing Institute. The term “parish nursing” refers to those who offer compassionate care and assistance to members of a church and/or neighbourhood, using their professional medical skills. The term parish nurse is reserved specifically for Registered Nurses, and the training being offered is rooted in well-established best practices, and is being offered with the participation and blessing of the Alberta Association for Parish Nursing. 

The first classes will run from June 23-30, 2017 at Taylor Seminary. We will have more details to announce shortly, including registration details and the course outline. If you want to be placed on the mailing list for more information about the Parish Nursing Institute, please send a request to
