The chief aim of the University
School of Nlursing is to prepare
nurses to meet the needs of the com-
munity. The nurse of today is
equipped to be a health advisor, as
well as to be a professionally skilled
person at the bedside of the patient.
The nursing school has a basic
three year course which leads to a
professional diploma for these en-
tering as high school graduates or a
BS in nursing for those entering with
two years of college credit.
The facilities for instruction in
the School of Nursing include the
University Hospital where the stu-
dent gains experience in medical,
surgical, pediatric and obstetri-
cal nursing and in medical and
surgical tuberculosis nursing. The
Thomas Hejiry Simpson Memorial
Institute for Medical Research, the
Maternity Unit, the Department of
Dietetics and the Neuropsychiatric
Institute afford clinical experience
-to the student nurse.
The Outpatient department of the
University Hospital provides observa-
tion in all stages of illness and guid-
ed experience in health teaching of
the patient and his family. The Medi-
cal School classrooms and labora-
tories are used for teaching courses
in the biological sciences.
Miss Ada Hawkins, assistant di-
rector of the School of Nursing,
stressed the fact that the school is
interested in increasing the num-
ber of students in the degree pro-
gram as the opportunities for
women with a BS in nursing are
greater than for those with only a
Miss Hawkins also said, "A women
with a college education is better able
to understand the social problems
connected with illness than a girl
just coming from high school."
For students desiring to enter
the nursing schoolwith 60 hours of
college credit, the specific require-
ments are six hours of English,
eight hours of chemistry and four
hours of zoology.
The University nursing school was
established in 1891, and since that
