VCSNCGC strives to see that no student of Christian Science who is expecting, seeking, and working for spiritual healing, and who is in need of nursing care, will go without care for lack of financial means while utilizing our services. Our Father-Mother God always provides the supply that is needed—even when we don’t necessarily see how it is going to happen. Christian Science healing includes everything necessary for its completion, including the physical, the moral and the financial. Healing is, must be, a complete demonstration of God’s goodness and love for His cherished idea, man.
As a matter of practicality, VCSNCGC considers the patient and or the patient’s family to be the first source of aid. This may include insurance payments, family gifts of support, or money from the patient’s own resources. We feel it is important that every patient in some way express gratitude through financially participating, however small, for the care that is being provided. Thus, every patient will be expected to pay something toward his or her own care, even if it is only a seemingly token amount. Gratitude is not bounded by the size of payment.
$55/hour, plus cost of supplies. There are no travel charges within the six-county Chicago metropolitan area.
Please note that nurses are not able to accept monetary tips as an individual. Gifts in the form of flowers or food items under the value of $50 are acceptable. Any monetary gifts may be accepted as a donation to Hill Top.
As part of the healing ministry of Christian Science Nursing, VCSNCGC offers need-based financial assistance on a case-by-case basis for individuals who are relying exclusively on Christian Science for healing.
Eligibility requirements for those applying for financial assistance include that the patient must be a member of The Mother Church and/or a branch church, and have a record of active service on behalf of Christian Science. Others may be considered on a case-by-case basis.
If you need financial assistance, please notify the administrative assistant or the Christian Science nurse, and she will explain the process to you. The process is confidential.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us.
