Christian Science Nurses Training – Le Verger/Sunrise Haven Accredited Program
Sunrise Haven’s accredited program provides flexible, one-on-one training. Christian Science nurses are trained to work in any setting. Training is expanded beyond working in a specific facility or in the home.
Training is divided into four levels – Introductory, Basic, Intermediate, Advanced – and two segments: classroom training and on-the-job mentoring. The classroom portion of each level lasts approximately two weeks. A shoulder-to-shoulder mentoring period takes place after each class and lasts as long as necessary to establish confidence and competence.
Classes firmly establish the spiritual basis for care through the study of the Bible and the writings of Mary Baker Eddy. The Socratic method is used – a form of inquiry and discussion between the student and trainer, based on asking and answering questions to stimulate critical thinking and to illuminate ideas.
