'What exactly is a Christian Science nurse?'

From the August 2012 issue of The Christian Science Journal

Over a hundred years ago, Mary Baker Eddy realized the need for loving, spiritually intuitive nursing care—in line with Christian Science healing. The seeds were sown, and since that time Christian Science nurses have become a vital link to the healing message of divine Science.

So here’s the question: For those of us who haven’t had the need of a Christian Science nurse, either for ourselves or our loved ones, do we really understand what they do? When and how they’re available? What kind of practical help they offer, as they listen for Mind’s guidance?

As Manager of Christian Science Nursing Activities for The Mother Church, Caroleen Scholet has the vital role of supporting Christian Science nursing worldwide. And eager to take up some of those questions, she shines some light on what Christian Science nursing is—and isn’t.
