What is a Christian Science nurse?
The role of the Christian Science nurse was established over 100 years ago by Mary Baker Eddy, the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science and is described in the Manual of The Mother Church Article VIII, Section 31 (page 49):
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.
The cards of such persons may be inserted in The Christian Science Journal under rules established by the publishers.”
There are hundreds of Christian Science nurses across the world providing compassionate and practical care for people both in their own homes and in Christian Science nursing facilities.
