We accept individuals to Fern Lodge based on their sincere desire to rely on Christian Science for healing, and our admissions are made based solely on our ability to give the needed Christian Science nursing care. We accept patients from all across the country.
Interested in becoming a Christian Science nurse? In our classes you will learn concepts of care and ethics that are in consonance with the teachings of Christian Science. Christian Science nursing skills are discussed and practiced in the classroom, followed by opportunities to practice those skills and ethics with patients.
You can support our activities and patients in many ways, from home or at the facility. We greatly appreciate prayers, volunteers, and financial assistance. Any and all love and support provided is felt here at Fern Lodge.
What is Christian Science Nursing?
True care is a manifestation of God's love for His children. Patients come to Fern Lodge with a variety of physical or mental needs. Our duty is to help meet those needs primarily through love and clear spiritual witnessing -- through our understanding of God’s ever-present care and of man’s pure, wholly spiritual nature. The needed physical care is also provided, and can help free patients from undue concern about limitations, fears, or activities of daily living, enabling them (and our staff) to turn more wholeheartedly to God, seeking spiritual growth and healing.
