WHAT IS CHRISTIAN SCIENCE NURSING?
Christian Science nursing is a practical, spiritual ministry that actively supports the patient’s decision to rely on Christian Science for healing. It is grounded in the Bible-based theology of Christian Science, which includes Christ Jesus’ commandment to love one another. (see John 15:12) This ministry is carried out with prayer, wisdom, compassion and skill.
The founder of Christian Science, Mary Baker Eddy, established the authority and standard for the Christian Science nurse in 1908 in The Manual of the Mother Church. (Page 49, Article VIII, Section 31):
Christian Science Nurse. SECT. 31. A member of The Mother Church who represents himself or herself as a Christian Science nurse shall be one who has a demonstrable knowledge of Christian Science practice, who thoroughly understands the practical wisdom necessary in a sick room, and who can take proper care of the sick.
