How did Parish Nursing originate? Parish Nursing was begun in 1984 by Dr. Granger Westberg. Westberg observed that by overlooking the relationship between spiritual well-being and physical health, patients were deprived of full-patient care. Westberg invited nurses to serve as a bridge between the faith community and the medical community. The parish nurse might best be described as a community-based nurse whose population is the local congregation.
