Purpose: The purpose of this study was to identify those factors that parish nurses believe to be important in supporting them in fulfilling their role. Theoretical/ Conceptual Framework: W. Edwards Demings theory of quality management based on a systems approach. Subjects: A population of 2330 parish nurses that completed the basic preparation course for parish nurses using the standardized core curriculum and whose names were submitted by the educational partners of the International Parish Nurse Resource Center were eligible to participate in this study. Method: This is a descriptive, cross sectional study which in part focused on thirty-seven factors important to parish nurses in fulfilling their role. The respondents were asked to rate on a scale of one to five how important each factor was to fulfilling the parish nurse role. The researcher ranked the thirty-seven factors using the frequency of response to the category "very important". Results: 1161 (54%) eligible completed surveys were returned. Factors rated "very important" by 84%-34% of the respondents included personal religious beliefs, length of time in nursing, length of time in parish nursing, participation in the basic preparation for parish nurses, pastoral support, pastoral supervision, ongoing continuing education, health cabinet, volunteers, reporting relationship, additional staff and the religious denomination served. There were no administrative factors such as being paid, evaluation process, or job description included in this list. Factors rated as least important related to involvement in professional nursing organizations. Conclusions: Parish nurses were able to identify those factors most helpful in fulfilling their parish nurse role. Given that parish nurse respondents did not find administrative factors "very important" in fulfilling their roles issues of sustainability of the parish nurse programs are of concern. AN: MN030194
