This study is a replication of a national study of most frequently used nursing interventions by parish nurses in the United States (2002). The purpose of the current international study is to identify the most frequently used interventions by parish nurses in Swaziland, Africa and compare these findings with the national study done in the United States. The design of this study is descriptive and cross sectional focusing on the nursing interventions used in the ministry of parish nursing practice in the United States and Swaziland, Africa. This study was completed in 2007. Respondents used a survey consisting of 486 nursing interventions included in the Nursing Intervention Classification System using a five point scale in which the nurses rated how often each intervention was used from, rarely if at all, about once a month, about once a week, about once a day, and several times a day. The parish nurse participants in Swaziland worked with faculty and nursing students from Carroll College to complete this survey. These responses were entered into a data base using SPSS, ranked within the categories of several times a day/daily, weekly and monthly, with the interventions used most frequently in each category. Due to the smaller numbers of participants in Swaziland, Africa, once the data was analyzed, focus groups led by faculty and nursing students reviewed the findings with the participants using a nominal method confirming the most frequently used interventions employed by the Swaziland parish nurses in each category. Due to the culture, mortality and morbidity in Swaziland the most frequently used nursing interventions differed from those employed by parish nurses in the United States. However, interventions core to the practice of parish nursing were among the frequently used nursing interventions. Parish nurses in Swaziland were able to select those interventions used most frequently by using the interventions found in the Nursing Intervention Classification System. Although there are differences in the nursing interventions used frequently by parish nurses in the United States and Swaziland there is consistency in the use of interventions identified as core to the practice in the United States.
