Miss Gardner's book is in part the revision of articles which have appeared in the Public Health Nurse Quarterly. The first portion of the book is devoted to a discussion of the history of public health nursing, the second to the organization and machinery of visiting nursing, including chapters on how to organize a visiting nurse association, the board of managers, the superintendent, the pupil nurse, and methods of organization and administration, while the third part is given up to special topics on public health nursing. This includes nursing of tuberculous patients, welfare nursing, school nursing, mental hygiene nursing, and industrial nursing. An appendix contains an outline of the national organization for public health nursing. The book contains a large amount of information, and should be of great assistance in the organization of public health nursing in any locality.
