Seek High School Girls As Nurses
A "pledge plan" sonsored toy the division of nurse education of the United States public health service and the national nursing council for war service was adopted Wednesday by the Ninth district nursing council for war service meeting at the Y.M.C.A. in Council Bluffs to discuss student nurse recruitment.
Purpose of the plan is to inform and interest high school girls in the 15-county southwest Iowa district in nursing as a profession. Through a "key" nurse in each county, the U. S. cadet nurse corps will be explained to qualified prospective candidates, who, if interested, will then pledge by filling in an application form and sending it to the nurse corps of the public health service.
Pledges will receive a pledge pin and membership card, but will not be obligated to become nurses. The program is intended merely to provide a method of keeping the interest of prospective nurses by sending them material on the nursing profession and the nurse corps. The program will go into effect April 1st.
