Christian Science Nursing Education

What is a Christian Science nurse?

A Christian Science nurse is a dedicated Christian Scientist and a member of the First Church of Christ Scientist in Boston, MA who has a great desire to serve God and man. Christian Science nurses demonstrate the ability to heal and uplift thought while providing practical, proper care in a sickroom through their understanding and application of the Bible, the Christian Science textbook, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, and other writings by Mary Baker Eddy.

What qualities are needed in order to become a Christian Science nurse?

Do you seek to bless your fellow man with the most effective help they can receive? Do you yearn to fulfill Article 8, Section 31 of the Manual of The Mother Church? Are you demonstrating Christian Science with healing results?

In considering the by-law for a Christian Science nurse, your “demonstrable knowledge” will be seen in your deep love of Christianity, your faithfully turning to God for every need, and in your patience, love, and joy of serving. Your “practical wisdom” will be seen in listening, discernment, and willingness. Your “proper care” will be seen in “doing unto others as you would have them do to you”, and in being conscientious, ethical, gentle, humble, and full of grace.

If you would like to learn more about becoming a Christian Science nurse or about the classes offered at Broadview, please visit our Education page, or call us at (323) 221-9174.
