College News and Departmental Notes: Nursing and Health

by Departmental notes - 1919

This summer the department of nursing and health offered instruction in two new fields of work. One course in public health nursing with special emphasis upon venereal disease was carried on at the request of the United States Public Health Service and in cooperation with the Social Service Department of Bellevue Hospital and the New York School of Social Work. The course was designed to prepare a selected group of qualified graduate nurses to act as state supervising nurses in venereal disease clinics. The work was grouped about the general problem of prevention and control of venereal diseases, and dealt with the causes arising from defective social and economic relationships, and with methods of control and prevention through administrative and legislative measures, through education, and through the development of higher community standards of living.
