AN IMPORTANT OBJECTIVE of the Committee L on Nursing is to work closely with state medical societies and particularly with those committees responsible for maintaining liaison with members of state nursing organizations. Prior to developing a definitive program geared to the needs of the states, the Committee believed it was essential to ascertain the extent of nursing liaison activities in all of the state societies. To elicit information for this program, the staff prepared a questionnaire which was forwarded to 52 state societies early in 1963. The following is a sampling of the information gleaned from the data:

  • Forty-one of the 50 state societies responding conduct active liaison programs of one type or another with nursing groups. In 27 of these societies, meetings are called by either nurses or physicians. A committee on nursing, or comparable group, is responsible for liaison with nursing organizations in 35 states.
