Sister John Gabriel says: "The purpose of this book is not to serve as a textbook in ethics—its principal aim is to bring before the student nurse some of the problems encountered by nurses in the practice of their profession." Concrete situations and problems are helpfully discussed arising in the experience of the institutional nurse, the private duty nurse, the public health nurse and the student nurse. This is a valuable contribution as supplementary reading in the study of ethics and should prove most practical also in offering material for valuable class discussions. It is stimulating and suggestive and will aid in clear thinking concerning standards of professional conduct which, as in all human relations, should be based on the golden rule.
