TIME: 2 p.m.
LOCATION: AST's St. Columba Chapel, 634 Francklyn St., Halifax, NS

“Parish nursing: stories registered nurses tell about a faith-based approach to caring for parishioners.”

The Rev. Michael Tutton, a student at the Atlantic School of Theology and non-stipendiary priest in the Community of Associate Parish Priests (CAPP) in the Anglican Church of Canada, will present his graduate research project on the topic of parish nursing. Parish nurses are registered nurses who provide education, referrals, advocacy and integration of faith with health issues in the context of their parishes and congregations. Michael explores the stories three nurses have told him about wholistic healing and what it means about the bridges that can be built between medical science and the Christian church. A 30-minute presentation is followed by a question-and-answer period.


Please note that Michael's presentation is one of several research projects that are being presented in various locations across the country. It is the only one being held on campus this term. Please see our Grad Projects page for times and locations of other Fall 2018 presentations.
