Christian Science Nurses Training School

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 for the holy work of Christian Science nursing.

The training addresses preparation for 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 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.

Four courses are included in the CSNA Training Program. Additional CSNA courses and workshops are offered periodically for Christian Science nurses listed in The Christian Science Journal.
