Professional Experience & Training


These Christian Science nurses bring to patients all over the Chicagoland area decades of professional experience and training. They are held to the same standard of confidentiality regarding patient information that the Manual of The Mother Church by Mary Baker Eddy (Article 8, Section 22) requires of Christian Science Journal-listed practitioners. They provide a preliminary visit including an explanation of services, a full needs assessment, and 3-way communication between our Christian Science nurse, the patient and the Christian Science Practitioner.


Our Christian Science nurses work under the authority of Article 8, Section 31 of the Manual of The Mother Church:

Christian Science Nurse. Sect 31 of the Manual of The Mother Church by Mary Baker Eddy: 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.
