What do Christian Science nurses do? (from ChristianScience.com)
Christian Science nurses help individuals who need skillful physical assistance, while relying on Christian Science treatment for healing. Firmly grounded in Christian Science themselves, Christian Science nurses help foster a healing atmosphere and help people function as normally as possible while healing progresses. The care they provide can include such things as helping people bathe, preparing special modified foods, bandaging, and helping people who need assistance to move about. Christian Science nurses do not diagnose, administer drugs, or provide any sort of physical therapy or other medical treatment. Learn more about a Christian Science nurse’s work.
A Christian Science nurse is defined in the Christian Science Church Manual as:
“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.”
