The Fern Lodge education program provides instruction and experience in a nurturing, supportive atmosphere. Our instructors help Christian Scientists gain a practical understanding of the spiritual foundation, standards and activities of Christian Science nursing.

We hold introductory, intermediate and advanced Christian Science nursing courses throughout the year. Please click here or call 510-886-2448 for more information.

Christian Science nursing seminars are offered for the public. These programs cover a broad range of Christian Science nursing-related topics and allow for directed discussions focused on specific nursing activities and the ideas that form their foundation. Seminars may be held at Fern Lodge or elsewhere at the invitation of a group of individuals or a Christian Science branch church.
