"This book deals with the school child, his parents and teachers, the health department and other official and voluntary agencies, the community in which he lives and the nurse who works in his school. It portrays nursing as it is most effectively carried on in the schools today." Thus the author sets the stage for a detailed discussion of the nurse serving the school, the characteristics and relations of her position, and the community of interests within which she performs her services. The primary appeal of this volume is to nurses concerned in some way with a school nursing service. This book will probably have a marked influence on the development of school nursing in the future. It will be of secondary interest to the school administrator, the local health officer, and others responsible for the direction of nurses serving the school.
Though the nurse is the center of attention
