Christian Science Nursing Education

A deep desire to serve God, by being active in the healing ministry of Christian Science Nursing, brings opportunities for spiritual growth.  As one explores the Church Manual By-Law:  Christian Science Nurse, a better understanding of the role of the Christian Science nurse as a Christian healer with the practical wisdom and ability to provide proper care becomes clear.

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 Churchp. 49 )

Glenmont is Committed To:

  • Preparing Christian Science nurses thoroughly to pursue inspired healing ministries.
  • Emphasizing spiritual study and growth as the primary component of each Christian Science nurse’s work.
  • Supporting each Christian Science nurse’s progress at his or her own pace.
  • Freeing Christian Science nurses from a false sense of responsibility for patients’ healing, while at the same time encouraging each apprentice to be a transparency for divine Love — a window through which Christ’s light will shine into patients’ hearts.
  • Supporting international Christian Scientists committed to the healing ministry of Christian Science Nursing.
  • Experienced Christian Science nurses not employed by Glenmont are eligible to enroll in a class to refresh or increase their skills and to gain a deeper understanding of the ethics of Christian Science nursing and its healing effect.
