Section I, Series 10. Pennsylvania Hospital Nursing Collection, 1876-1995.

Council for Nursing Education, 1920-1927 (MG 3.4, 16 file folders)

At the start of the 20th century, recruiting graduate nurses was a challenge faced by most hospitals. Daniel Test, Superintendent of Pennsylvania Hospital in the early 1900s, served as chairman of a committee to carry out the task of recruiting student nurses. This series consists of Dr. Test’s correspondence with other members of the committee regarding their organization and work. A brochure outlining a national plan for recruiting student nurses prepared by the American Red Cross is included.
