Panel 1


Christian Science nurses are available to foster a healing atmosphere and provide skilled practical care to anyone relying on Christian Science for healing. They are an active support for spiritual healing, and are not medical nurses. They are students of the Bible and Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy. Our practice is grounded firmly in the theology of Christian Science.

Mary Baker Eddy, who discovered and founded Christian Science, defined Christian Science as “the law of God, the law of good…” (Rudimental Divine Science p.1). She had learned that God is infinite Love, and completely good. A clear glimpse of this, through prayer, has power to heal and transform anyone. For more information on spiritual healing and Mary Baker Eddy, please visit www.christianscience.com.


The Canadian Christian Science Nursing Association (CCSNA) is comprised of both experienced and new Christian Science nurses, serving independently or within a facility setting. See the Christian Science Journal for a listing of Christian Science nurses in your area.

The CCSNA was formed to support Christian Science nurses serving their Church communities, and to provide a platform for communication regarding availability, education, recruitment, and retention of Christian Science nurses in Canada. They can be contacted 24/7 at our toll-free number 1-888-234-8160, or by email at ccsninformation@gmail.com. They are also available for consultation by phone, text, email, Zoom, FaceTime, or WhatsApp.
