The purpose of the book as stated by the author is "to provide a text-book that will suffice for all the recitations in a two years' course in training schools for nurses." "The course adopted" in these volumes, says the author, "is based upon the hypothesis that a nurse must understand the fundamental principles of physiology and hygiene before a rational understanding of the principles of nursing is possible." The first volume is therefore preparatory, being intended for the first course, and the second volume for the principles and practice of nursing. The book is dedicated to that veteran hygienist and superintendent, Dr. Edward Cowles.
