rn magazine, september 1950
correlation to today's online nursing programs:
a. rn speaks, where angels fear to tread
"outspoken criticism of correspondence nursing programs...
the products of these schools have learned to nurse patients by mail, by by demonstration on chase dolls, and in the more progressive schools, by means of visual aids, all without touching a live patient at the bedside..."
ftc goes after school for false advertising as not recognized by state boards of nursing or practical nurse association
b. practical nurse school tangles with the law
"87 % hospitals... unable to find as many nurses as they need...diplomas given upon graduation...."
forgot to add:
"must pay $6.50 nursing pin fee in order to receive receive diploma".

See you liked on Debits and Credits page "Loyal Slaves" reader's response....
[s] ...hospitals have held the upper and directive hand in the evolution of nursing is common knowledge. And when the nursing profession makes the material effort to tear away from those tyranical apron strings, the bridge between idealism and realism will herals the new and rightful and the sound foundation of a truely noble profession.
