The BA’s Christian Science Nursing Arts Training Program includes mentored instruction that follows the CSNA class.  Luke Ochieng, a Christian Science nurse from Arden Wood in San Francisco, explains his experience with mentoring.

Kim Denson is originally from the San Francisco area, and now resides in the Boston area. She started working in the field of Christian Science nursing during college. After graduating from college, she then decided to take part in the BA’s Christian Science Nursing Arts because, as she says, “I knew it would broaden and strengthen my practice of Christian Science nursing. All the classes I have taken have been wonderful, from the instructors to other classmates. I am truly grateful I was led into this wonderful healing ministry.”

Adria Howe Johnson was raised in New England, lived in the Midwest and came into Christian Science nursing in response to her heartfelt desire to be more useful to God and to man. She had spent extended times away from home caring for loved ones.  This along with seeing Christian Science nurses in action, including the excellent care they gave a relative at the BA, led Adria to apply for training in Christian Science Nursing Arts.

The classroom instruction was so uplifting and rich. The study was demanding, but necessary and so useful. The instructors are inspiring, kind, gentle, and yet clear and firm with the instruction, when appropriate. I would absolutely recommend Christian Science Nursing Arts training.”

Turning to the Church Manual By-law “Christian Science Nurse” again and again made clear the wonderful provision and vision Mrs. Eddy had for humanity and for Christian Science nursing. My identity as a Christian Science nurse has deepened and made more available in my daily life, as well.”
