This syllabus is a companion to the syllabus on obstetrics for nurses published two years ago under the auspices of the American Gynecological Society. It is an excellent composite of the subject matter deemed essential in the instruction and training of the undergraduate nurse in the field of gynecology. Nine lectures are presented in thirty-five pages of text. They cover anatomy, physiology, disorders of menstruation, inflammatory diseases, tumors, obstetric injuries and malpositions of the uterus, special gynecologic disorders, gynecologic nursing, and gynecologic operations. The committee has pointed out in the foreword that this syllabus is offered as a convenient outline for the instructor, while almost a textbook for the pupil nurse, and can be modified to suit any local technic or point of view. The directness, simplicity and authority of this syllabus should lead to its general adoption in the training schools of the country.
