The original edition of this book was the work of those concerned with the teaching of student nurses in the Philadelphia General Hospital. It was originally intended for the use of those connected with school, but because of its excellent organization and valuable data the book proved useful in other training schools. The present revised edition has been organized to meet requirements of increased ward instruction. The drawings of the various trays to be set up help the student to visualize her work. The material is clearly and concisely presented and, while it is specifically adapted for students of the Philadelphia General Hospital School of Nursing, it should prove a valuable book in any nurses' training school library.
