The first edition of this book was written at the close of World War II for new cadet nurse graduates and nurses recently discharged from the Armed Services. This second edition has been almost entirely rewritten with the necessary changes to bring it up-to-date and discussion of the new fields that have been opened, the higher salaries that have been established, and the added opportunities for postgraduate education. The aim of this edition is to assist professional nurses to select the specialty best suited to their interests and abilities, to help them prepare for it, to advise them on how to apply for a position, and to show them how to grow in and with their profession.
Each chapter is followed by a statement on salary ranges, references to sources of employment, and lists of additional reading material. A chapter is devoted to practical nursing and its opportunities. A bibliography
