To Be Nurses
y ean Lloyd
Choice of Several Programs
Is Offered to College-Trained
Women Entering Profession
Michigan coeds were urged by Dean
Alice C. Lloyd in a statement given
to The Daily yesterday to enter theI
nursing profession in order to meet
the growing war needs.
Dean Lloyd stressed the importanceI
of post-war reconstruction and the
specialized responsibilities in the nur-
sing field which require, college-
trained women. Because of this and
because a student nurse is helping in
the war as soon as she goes into a
hospital, Dean Lloyd asked that no
woman hold back, because the war,
might be over before she graduates.
Nursing Programs Named
At present a number of programs
are being offered to any prospective,
nurse. The first is the standard
three-year course based upon high
Miss Thelma I. Scratch, recruit-
er for the Michigan Nursing Coun-
cil for War Service, will be in the
War Information Center of the
League from 2 p.m. to pm. to-
day and tomorrow to give infor-
nation on war nursing. A film,
"R. N. - Serving All Mankind",
will be shown by her tomorrow at
4:30 p.m. in the Rackham Build-
school graduation and leading to the
diploma in nursing. The second- is
the standard three-year course in
nursing based upon two years of col-
lege work, leading to the bachelor's
degree in nursing.
The third is the standard three-
year "program, based upon a bache-
lor's degree and leading to the degree
of Master of Nursing. Yale Uni-
versity School of Nursing and the
Frances Payne Bolton School ofnNur-
sing of Western Reserve University
are the only two university schools
who have this last program.
Combined Course Possible
Combined curricula are possible
which allow students to be accepted
in the professional school who have
completed two or more years of work
in a junior college or a regular four-
year college. This may include cour-
ses closely related to the professional
Are Needed Now
In War Emergency
T HE NURSING PROFESSION is one which has great peacetime sig-
nificance. In wartime it is second only in importance to the armed
forces, in fact it becomes part of the armed forces and is called on for
active service with them. In time of war also, civilian health becomes
a major concern since essential production and community well-being
are vitally important.
Now this profession, which is peculiarly a woman's profession, is
unable to meet the increased demands. It needs 65,000 recruits for the
coming year. It needs college-trained women 'because positions of
great responsibility are going to be available in war work, in industry,
in public health, in admiinistration.
THERE ARE several war services for women of which the future
after the war is uncertain. Nursing is going to be as important in
reconstruction and rehabilitation as in war and there will be many
developments in Europe and in South America as well as in this coun-
try where young women with language ability and administrative
ability and a nurse's training will be needed in public health work and
No young woman should hesitate to go into training because she
thinks the war will be over before she graduates. She is in active war
work as soon as she enters the hospital for her training and if the war
should be a short one, which seems unlikely, the reconstruction period
is going to be long, and nurses are going to be especially needed then.
The nursing profession combines the practical use of scientific
knowledge with experience in wor king with people to promote their
well-being. It is a great profession for women and one in which all
women should feel a pride and a very real interest.

WAA will hold a leadership pro-
gram for all women interested in
petitioning for offices on the exec-
utive board or as sports managers
from 4:30 p.m. to 6 p.m. tomorrow
at Barbour gym. All women, irre-
spective of class or experience in
WAA activities, are urged to at-
tend, since the fundamentals of
WAA work will be explained in
full at that time.
Coeds Can Become
Coeds who have put in a minimum
of six hours work at the surgical
dressing unit may become instruc-
tors, providing their work is passed
on by a regular Red Cross instructor.3
Those coeds who qualify will be
given a regulation Red Cross head-
dress. It has also been decided that
a Red Cross button will be awarded
any coed who has worked 50 hours
at the unit.
The houses that are especially in-
vited to attend the unit tomorrow
include Alpha Xi Delta, Delta Gan-
ma, Jordan Hall, zone III and zone
IV. Alumnae House, Gamma Phi
Beta, Alpha Delta Pi, zone V and
zone VI will be special guests on
Friday. The unit as open from 1 p.m.
to 5 p.m. in the game room of the
or actual three-year nursing pro-
gram, or the tWo parts may be quite
separate. Thy latter is better for
the student who is undecided about
entering nursing, or who is in college
and wants to answer the plea for
more nurses during the war.
Schemes for accelerating the nurs-
ing program include summer term
hospital courses that may be taken
while the student is still in preiclinical
work. There is also the possibility
that senior students in nursing
schools may be sent to military hos-
pitals to complete their final months
of clinical experience.
Nursing combined with a college
education offers many opportunities
in foreign reconstruction work to the
language student, and executive posi-j

A new phase in the project was
marked with the tacking up of a

t Every Michigan woman will help
her house record when she gives her
daily fifteen minutes to exercising.
A point is given each participant for
every time she exercises, and as a
reward for consistency, an extra
point will be given for attendance at
five consecutive exercise periods.
