Nursing School Enrollment Hits New High

Assembly Opens Petitioning
For Annual FortnightSkits

By ELAINE EDMONDS
As proof of the success of the
four year nursing program insti-
tuted in 1952, enrollment in the
school of nursing has jumped over
200 per cent.
From a combined yearly enroll-
ment of 96 students in the three
and five year programs which the
four year program replaced, the
enrollment has grown to the pres-
ent high of 197 in this year's fresh-
man class.
Student Recruiters
Rhoda Reddig, director of nurs-
ing, commented, "A large part of

the credit for this terrific response
goes to our students who are our
best recruiters."
The basic reasons behind the
change were the facts that today
the nurse is given more responsi-
bility in the actual care and treat-
ment of the patient and she must
therefore have a more thorough
understanding of the patient and
his personality.
The four year program accom-
plishes these aims by providing a
background in general education
as well as in nursing. This pro-
gram integrates courses in the

nursing school with courses in the
medical school, school of educa-
tion and literary college.
Well-Earned Reward
A highlight in the career of any
nurse is the day she receives the
wide black strip for her cap at the
beginning of her senior year. The
seniors then hand down their nar-
row black strips to the new jun-
iors who will wear for the first
time the symbol of their class
standing.
In her sophomore year the
nursing student experiences her,
first actual laboratory practice in

hospital work. This educational
practice increases from three
hours a week in the sophomore
year to 25 hours a week in the
last two yearsL
The nurse also has 15 hours of
general electives in her junior and
senior years. besides clinical ex-
perience with patient care in the
hospital home and community.
Coming to the University as a
freshman the nursing student lives
in any of the, dormitories. In her
sophomore year she moves to Cou-
zens Hall, the nursing student dor-
mitory across from the hospital.

Assembly Association, the or-
ganization representing independ-
ent women, has announced that
petitioning for Fortnight positions
will open tomorrow.
Coeds are asked to petition for
general chairman, skits chairman,
awards chairman, program chair-
man, and publicity chairman.
Petitioning for the skit night
event closes Friday, and interview-
ing will begin the next week.
Original Fortnight
Fortnight, to be presented Nov.
22, originally took place over a
period of two weeks. Three sep-
arate ceremonies were celebrated
over the fourteen days. These in-
cluded recognition night, installa-
tion of house presidents, and, cli-
maxing the two weeks, the fort-
night skits.
On recognition night, independ-

ent women who had been out-
standing in scholarship or extra-
,urricular activities were honored.
Residence halls having the great-
est coed participation in extra-
curricular activities sand the best
over-all scholastic averages also
received awards.
Skits Highlight Event
Fortnight noy combines all three
events into one gala night cen-
tering around the skits. The skits
are judged on the basis of origi-
nality, effectiveness of presenta-
tion, clarity and audience response
and the winning groupis given an
award.
Petitions may. be picked up Mon-
day in the Undergraduate office
in the League. Additional informa-
tion regarding these positions is
available in the Presidents' Re-
ports in the League.
