Christian Science Nursing Care


Christian Science nursing is a religious, nonmedical form of care that accords with Christ Jesus’ words, “Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me” (Matthew 25:40).

Mary Baker Eddy (the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science), recognizing the necessity for spiritually-based nursing care, established Christian Science nursing as an integral component of her church, as is seen in one of the Church’s bylaws:

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.
The Manual of the Mother Church, p. 49

Glenmont strives to support the patient’s prayerful efforts to demonstrate the full practicality of God’s healing love, providing the patient with the practical assistance necessary while maintaining an environment fully supportive of physical, moral, and spiritual regeneration. We are dedicated to demonstrating a higher, purer, more Christianly scientific nursing that actively supports healing and provides evidence of God’s great love.

Glenmont’s services are available to those seeking spiritual regeneration and healing through sole reliance on prayer as practiced in Christian Science. Membership in the Christian Science Church is not a requirement.

Christian Science nursing care is provided by senior Christian Science nurses who have met the standards for listing in The Christian Science Journal and by other qualified Christian Science nursing personnel working under their supervision.
