Survey of the Grading Committee
Mrs. M. A. Burgess, New York: We have been engaged during the past year in trying to find out what the true facts are about the supply and demand of nursing service. We have reports in the office now from a little more than 35,00) nurses and more than 28,000 physicians. We have some detailed reports from more than 1,500 hospitals. We have not been so fortunate in getting returns from patients, but we have well over 2,000 already, and more patient, nurse and medical reports are coming in every day. Then, in addition, of course, we have a great many smaller groups of reports from nursing registries, for example, or from public health organizations.
