Wesley Nurse Program

The Wesley Nurse program spans 80 sites throughout South Texas and is Methodist Healthcare Ministries’ largest geographic outreach program. The professional practice of a Wesley Nurse is not limited to the physical dimension of medical needs; rather, it includes a mind, body, and spirit holistic approach. A key component Wesley Nurses undertake in their communities is providing health education, health promotion and facilitation of resources. They assist individuals and communities in achieving improved health and wellness through self-empowerment and access to healthcare 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.
