In this volume are included a number of essays on nurse training both in this country and abroad. Dr. Worcester emphasizes the relationship of the physician to nurse training, since the nurse must inevitably serve under medical direction. He is inclined to see the need of nurse training in the home as well as in the hospital, something similar perhaps to the necessity for preceptorship in the training of the physician. Ideals that have animated the nursing profession beginning with Florence Nightingale are here held up repeatedly to the nurses of the future. Dr. Worcester's views are based on many years of medical practice. He writes simply and artistically. The book is so well printed that it would constitute a desirable gift for any nurse.
