What is the role of a Christian Science Nurse?

Christian Science nurses are available to help anyone relying on Christian Science for healing. They help individuals who need skillful physical assistance while relying on Christian Science treatment for healing.
A Christian Science nurse is love in action, though to some, “Christian Science” and “nurse” might sound like two contradictory terms, and yet to nurse someone means to nurture and tend to, to comfort . . . to love.

What is a Christian Science nurse not?

They don’t make a medical diagnosis or offer a prognosis, and they don’t administer drugs, use medically oriented techniques, or alternative medicine such as vitamins, herbal remedies, etc. In other words, they fully support what Mary Baker Eddy says in Science and Health: “Our system of Mind-healing rests on the apprehension of the nature and essence of all being,—on the divine Mind and Love’s essential qualities. Its pharmacy is moral, and its medicine is intellectual and spiritual, though used for physical healing” (p. 460).
