Wesley Nurse

The Wesley Nurse program spans 80+ sites throughout South Texas and is Methodist Healthcare Ministries’ largest program geographically.  

The professional practice of the Wesley Nurse falls within the specialty of faith community nursing which incorporates nursing with intentional care of the spirit. As registered nurses, Wesley Nurses address mind, body and spirit in a holistic approach to health.  A key component of the work Wesley Nurses undertake in their communities is providing care coordination for uninsured patients, health education, health promotion and facilitation of resources. Wesley Nurses assist individuals, families and communities in achieving improved health and wellness through self-empowerment and access to health care resource information. 

While the Wesley Nurse program is a component of Methodist Healthcare Ministries’ ecumenical outreach and located within churches, it does not teach a particular set of denominational beliefs. All Wesley Nurse programs are free, and all members of the community are welcome. Programs are offered to groups or on an individual basis.
