In Memory of Jean King, RN, Faith Community Nurse


Collectively, on September 14th, Parish Nurse Ministries of New York, Inc. we lost one of the founding members of Faith Community Nursing in WNY, Jean King. Several long-time members offered an in-person tribute to Jean at her funeral. See below…

Jean was a member and Executive Board Officer of the Parish Nurse Ministries of NY, Inc., for many years, serving in several capacities. She served as the FCN at Zion United Church of Christ for which she provided loving care and education to her congregation as well as valuable information and assistance to her Pastor.

Memorials for Jean King may be made to:
Zion UCC, 15 Koenig Circle, Tonawanda, NY 14150

Resolution for Jean King



“He who dwells in the secret place of the most high shall abide in the shadow of the Almighty”
Psalm 91:1

Whereas God who is the creator of all and in his infinite wisdom and divine love has called from labor to rest our dear Jean, a faithful and loyal member of the Parish Nurse Ministries of New York, Inc.

Whereas Jean was a faithful member and a positive role model for all members of the organization.

Whereas Jean was a friend, a helper and above all a spirit filled and prayerful Christian.

Be it resolved that the members of the Parish Nurse Ministries of New York, Inc. mourn her passing and share in the loss with her family.

Be it resolved that we will miss her gentle words of encouragement and her strength of character.

Be it resolved that we will cherish the memory of her sense of humor and her radiant smile.

We proclaim that we loved Jean dearly but God’s love granted her peace and eternal rest.

“And God shall wipe away all tears from your eyes and there shall be no more death, either sorrow, nor crying, Neither shall there be any more pain.”

Revelation 21:4

First Published June 20, 2020 Research Article

Abstract

"Faith community nursing and holistic nursing are recognized by the American Nurses Association as nursing specialties. Both nursing specialties practice with the understanding that holistically caring for an individual as a unique whole in his or her totality including respecting and attending to a human being’s spiritual and/or faith-based needs across the life span is integral in promoting health and healing. The purpose of this article is to present the evolution of faith community nursing and holistic nursing practice and to compare their similarities and differences based on each specialty’s current Scope and Standards of Practice. Utilizing each specialty’s Scope and Standards of Practice allowed the authors a fair, practical, and extensive means for presenting a comprehensive and inclusive comparison. Continued and partnered research should be conducted by both specialties to advance their scope and standards of practice, to support comprehensive evidence-based and outcome-based care that promotes health, healing, compassion and caring, and to educate others regarding each nursing specialty’s role, value, and significant contributions to the art and science of nursing."
