The Church Manual Bylaw titled “Christian Science Nurse” sets the standard for Christian Science nursing.
This Bylaw and the Sunrise Haven mission statement are the foundation on which trustees, managers, and staff evaluate Sunrise Haven’s capacity and effectiveness in fulfilling its mission through the services it provides.
