The author believes that chemistry is not given the attention in graduate and undergraduate instruction of nurses that its importance merits, and that the more chemistry a nurse knows the greater her value to the patient and to the physician. Along some lines, dietetics, for example, this may be true; but the majority of physicians send specimens for analysis to a properly equipped laboratory for examination; a nurse seldom if ever possesses the necessary equipment, and hospital laboratories are generally in charge of properly qualified men. This particular book, however, is clear and concise, and seems well adapted for use as a textbook for nurses.
