With the aid of many industrial nurses, the author has prepared a brief outline of what is relatively a new field. She states that the trained nurse was probably first employed in industry in 1895, but that it is only within the last decade that the real development in this field has taken place. She points out that in addition to a good preliminary education and hospital training, the industrial nurse requires a working knowledge of psychology, and of civic, industrial, social and relief problems. The book discusses the work, presenting typical forms and blanks for practical use. There is a good analysis of the relations of the nurse to her fellow employees. In an appendix are a brief outline of first aid methods and a list of sources of information relative to national social organizations, and, finally, a brief bibliography for special reading.
