CHRISTIAN, SCIENTIFIC NURSING

Giving evidence of God's presence

WHEN I BEGAN WORK as a Christian Science nurse right after college, I fielded a lot of questions. In those days most Christian Science nurses still wore white uniforms, so when I rode the bus to or from the Christian Science nursing facility where I worked, other passengers would often ask me what to do about their stiff arm or about medications they were taking.

Then I'd explain that I was a Christian Science nurse, and worked with patients who used a completely mental and spiritual system of healing—no medication or physical therapy involved. A common next question might be, "Oh right, Christian Scientists don't go to doctors. So why do you have nurses?"
