Fundamental to the ministry of a Christian Science nurse is an active, prayerful confirmation of man’s innate spirituality and responsiveness to God’s harmonious government. This spiritual witnessing undergirds each aspect of the care a Christian Science nurse renders.
You can contact a Christian Science nurse directly to help with the following:
- A Personal Visit – a Christian Science nurse will come to the home, conduct an initial assessment of the situation, confer with the patient, practitioner, and family, and address any immediate need.
- A Christian Science Nursing Plan – if ongoing care is needed, a personalized plan will be created, including the type of care, schedule, supplies and equipment needed. Proper care is regularly reviewed by the Christian Science nurse and periodically reviewed with the patient and his/her family. (Time is not a factor in review of continued care.)
- HEALING! – Christian Science nurses expect that their patients will find their freedom and return to their normal activities. Testimonies of healing and feedback on the care received are joyfully welcomed.
- The full range of services provided by Christian Science nurses can be found on ChristianScience.com. Click here, and once you reach that website click on "Christian Science nurse scope of services".
Journal-listed Christian Science nurses are fully prepared to serve students of Christian Science of any age – children through seniors.
Note: Christian Science Nurses are not registered medical nurses and do not fulfill the medical duties expected of Registered Nurses.
