    Many of us, from what I hear, struggle with documentation of our visits. The revised FCN Foundations Course is clear about our responsibility as professional nurses to document, preferably with standardized methods. While there are documentation programs that can be purchased, many of our churches don’t have the resources to pay for those systems or feel uneasy using them. Would other Parish Nurses share how they deal with this challenge? Any forms you use that have worked particularly well? How do you feel about NIC,NOC and NANDA and using those methods in your practice? What are your challenges with documentation?

    When I was at Avera we developed a web based documentation system. Its very easy to use. I can see if Avera would be willing to let others consider using the system, if you are interested.

    We should think about adding some information about documentation on the web site. Would Avera be willing to have us put in a link to this system?

      They would have to deal with requests on a one by one basis, Phyllis. It’s an easy system to use, but getting access set up for a given parish nurse takes planning and assuring security is in place for both the PN and for Avera’s system.
