The Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, Mary Baker Eddy, saw the need for Christian Science Nursing and made provision for it in 1908 in The Manual of the Mother Church Article VIII, Section 31:

Christian Science Nurse: SECT. 31. A member of The Mother Church who represents himself or herself as a Christian Science nurse shall be one who has a demonstrable knowledge of Christian Science practice, who thoroughly understands the practical wisdom necessary in a sick room, and who can take proper care of the sick.
