A calling to serve as a Christian Science nurse
Arden Wood offers a training program in the Christian Science Nursing Arts (CSNA) in conjunction with the Chestnut Hill Benevolent Association (BA). This training is an avenue of support for members of The Mother Church as they prepare themselves to meet the requirements set forth in the Church Manual By-law, Christian Science Nurse. CSNA training helps develop a readiness to serve the Christian Science field in several different ways:
- Christian Science Nursing at a Christian Science care facility, summer camp or school.
- Serving as a private-duty Christian Science nurse, providing care and oversight in the home.
- Serving as a visiting Christian Science nurse, providing short-term care and assistance in the home or the community.
- Side-by-side mentoring of less experienced Christian Science nurses as they gain practical experience.
