Welcome to CSNSNH
Welcome to the Christian Science Nurse Service of New Hampshire (CSNSNH). Our Mission is to provide and promote Christian Science nursing care, embracing an individual’s reliance on Christian Science for healing.
We serve all of New Hampshire and bordering towns in Vermont, Maine and Massachusetts.
Earlier versions of our organizations offered home aide services, and then both home aide services and visiting Christian Science nurse services. Eventually the demand for Christian Science nursing grew to the point where a full-time nurse was necessary. For many years Pat Cameron was our full-time visiting nurse, with Paula Brensinger joining us in September 2016. We also use on-call Christian Science nurses to provide relief to our full-time nurse, so we can offer 24×7 services throughout the year.
Nursing fees cover about 20% of our operating costs. The rest comes from individual contributions from people in the region and at large, from our investments, endowments, and grants from foundations.
