This book contains answers to hundreds of questions which were asked by nurses' examining boards throughout the country last year. The editorial board which answers these questions comprises eleven nurses or instructors in high positions in well known institutions. The questions are classified under the various subjects in which nurses are examined, such as anatomy and physiology, hygiene, pharmacology, nutrition, medical nursing, surgical nursing, obstetric nursing and the nursing of children. While the book is obviously intended to help nurses who expect to take these state board examinations, it will also serve as a guide for a thorough review and as an encyclopedia of modern knowledge on nursing.
