The Joy of Nursing

What a privilege awaits the nurse who is entrusted with the care of those needing help and encouragement! No service rendered others offers a wider opportunity for the expression of gentleness and joyous giving than does that of nursing. The work of a nurse should express good will and inspire hope and confidence.

Under the marginal heading "Aids in sickness" in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," Mary Baker Eddy clearly states the qualifications for a Christian Science nurse when she says (p. 395), "The nurse should be cheerful, orderly, punctual, patient, full of faith,—receptive to Truth and Love." The nurse who wholeheartedly turns to God for guidance learns to express these qualities, which are "aids" in the healing work, and is, through this positive reliance upon Principle, prepared to meet the need of the hour.
