This course is 5 weeks in the classroom, and practical application both on the Christian Science nursing floor at Broadview and in the field. In the Level 3 course, students will train in cleansing and bandaging wounds while building on the skills learned in Levels 1 and 2. Students will learn how to make advanced assessments and manage sudden needs. Students will study the role of the Christian Science Nurse in a variety of settings including private homes, Christian Science camps and even hospitals.
The vision for all activities in this course is to help the individual Christian Scientist understand the principles and purpose of Christian Science nursing in the context of Christianity and to support the trained Christian Science nurse in maintaining a right practice of Christian Science nursing.
Students will have an opportunity to spend time shadowing a Journal-listed Christian Science Nurse with the Broadview Visiting Christian Science Nurse Service. During this time students will make home care visits, assess the needs of patients, give Christian Science nursing care, and take a look at the behind-the-scenes work of the service.
