Christian Science Nursing Care
What is Christian Science nursing?
Most students of Christian Science choose to rely solely on prayer for healing, an approach they have found effective in their lives. But if healing is not achieved quickly, there may be need for practical care beyond what the individual alone, or their family, can provide. A Christian Science nurse is a Christian Scientist who shares their patient’s approach in relying fully on God for healing. They have no training in medical treatment or medical theory, but have professional experience and training to meet a wide range of practical nursing needs – from reading or assistance with meals, to bandaging or full bed care.
