Training of Medical Social Workers
The purpose of the Ecole des infirmières de l'assistance publique is to train social workers for the hospitals and municipal lodging houses administered by the Assistance publique (public charities) of Paris. The initial annual salary for such workers, after two years of study, is 4,850 francs (when lodging is not furnished), to which is added a bonus on account of the high cost of living (at present 730 francs), and a residence bonus of 1,200 francs for the region of Paris. During the course of their preparation, pupils receive their board and room and laundry. For the first year they receive an annual salary of 730 francs and for the second year, 1,095 francs, together with a residence bonus of 485 francs a year and a bonus, to cover the high cost of living, of 438 francs a year. Candidates for appointment must be unmarried
