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, begins in January, 2017 with our level one course, Ministry of Christian Science Nursing 1; subsequent course levels will follow. Instruction and experience in homes and elsewhere in the community, as well as in the Christian Science nursing facility, 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). 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.

The workshop, overnight accommodation, and meals are complimentary.
