Little research has been done on the concept of spiritual leadership. The purpose of this study is to document the stories of first generation leaders of the parish nurse movement in the United States from 1982 to 1999 while testing the Waterwheel Model of Spiritual Leadership (2006) as a guide for the interview questions. The research is qualitative using a scheduled, video taped interview of twenty known parish nurse leaders from different geographic areas between the ages of fifty and eighty. These selected parish nurse pioneers were invited to participate by the researchers given their history of providing leadership to this spiritual based nursing practice in their particular geographic areas. The schedule of questions was submitted to the participants prior to the video taped interview along with the consent form. The schedule of questions included seven questions regarding demographics of the leader, two questions about their greatest accomplishment and challenges in parish nursing and nine questions related to the Waterwheel Model of Spiritual Leadership. Data was analyzed through review of the video tapes and identification of consistent themes in the stories of the research participants. The repetitive themes identified from the interviews were then reviewed for consistency with the concepts represented in the Waterwheel Model of Spiritual Leadership. Participants readily responded to questions and reported alignment with the personal capacities noted in the waterwheel model. Most participants related coming from humble means and in retrospect could see how previous life experiences prepared them for their grass roots leadership and development of the ministry of parish nursing practice in their specific geographic areas. All video tapes from this study will be accessible through the Westberg Archives in Cudahy Library, Loyola University Chicago.
