Our love and gratitude for Christian Science nurses and Christian Science nursing is finding expression in a new curriculum in the Tenacre School of Christian Science Nursing.

The workshop,“Christian Science Nurse”: A Manual By-Law for Every Member is offered periodically on weekends at Tenacre; it is also available as a full- or half-day workshop at branch churches in the area. Please contact us for more information about scheduling a workshop at your branch church.

The core of our curriculum, the Ministry of Christian Science Nursing courses, is comprised of four levels. Classroom discussions, practice sessions, and mentoring are integrated into each course.  Instruction and experience in homes and elsewhere in the community, as well as in Christian Science nursing facility settings, are included from the outset.


“Christian Science Nurse”: A Manual By-Law for Every Member

This workshop explores the foundational ideas and qualities that find expression in Christian Science nursing, based on the Manual By-Law, “Christian Science Nurse” (Article VIII Sec. 31). We are happy to provide complimentary workshops in full- or half-day formats at branch churches and societies.

The following workshops will be offered on the Tenacre campus. The workshop, overnight accommodation, and meals are complimentary.

Join us to discover more about how the spirit of this By-Law enlarges and supports your practice of Christian Science — right where you are.
