KIRKUS REVIEW

In this career series, this provides an introductory perspective of this profession which for all its romantic associations is as demanding as rewarding. The average day in the life of a nurse which begins at 6:55 A.M.; the various type of nursing careers- general duty- office- special- clinic- etc.; the qualifications, above all a ""pleasant determination to be pleasant""; the types of training programs- particularly collegiate vs. hospital school, and the costs; the training period from year to year--- the coverage here is complete and the specifications sound. Although the conditions described to not perhaps apply to metropolitan areas- certainly, in city hospitals, since the nursing shortage, the routine of the floor nurse has been radically altered and includes little direct patient contact and care..... Basic occupational guidance.
