The BA’s Christian Science Nurses Training School offers the Christian Science Nursing Arts (“CSNA”) Training Program in support of dedicated members of The Mother Church who are preparing to represent themselves as a Christian Science nurse. The training addresses preparation for and securing a practice in this spiritual ministry that meets the standard and requirements of the Church Manual By-law “Christian Science Nurse.” (See Church Manual by our Leader, Mary Baker Eddy, Art. VIII, Sect. 31.) The art of Christian Science nursing is taught in the classroom and supported in practice with mentored instruction in this holy work.
In addition to the CSNA Training Program, individual CSNA courses and workshops are offered periodically for Christian Science nurses listed in the Christian Science Journal.
“When I was considering [taking training at] the Benevolent Association, I didn’t know a lot about Christian Science nursing. But I knew a lot about Church, and I knew a lot about my love for God and for my fellow man….I am a different person today because of my knowledge and love for Christian Science nursing. It has helped me to grow individually, spiritually, in my church work, and in my relationships with others. The Christian Science Nursing Arts training has brought much ‘to my love and appreciation for Christian Science.”
