Operation Decision: Citizen Planning for Nursing in the South.
Southern Regional Assembly of Constituent Leagues for Nursing.; National League for Nursing, New York, NY. Council of Public Health Nursing Services.
More than 170 key representatives of nursing, allied health and education professions, government agencies, regional and state planning groups, and other citizens participated in the conference, which sought to answer the questions: (1) What is community planning? (2) Who does it? and (3) How does community planning for nursing relate to overall planning for health services and education? Speeches include: "Citizen Planning for Nursing," by Edwin F. Rosinski, "The Virginia Study" by Mabel E. Montgomery, "State-Wide Planning in North Carolina" by Howard R. Boozer, and "Comprehensive Community Nursing--Chaos or Challenge" by Dorothy L. Barfield. Regional advisory teams suggested nursing service and nursing education issues to state groups for discussion. Groups representing Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, and West Virginia formulated statements of concern and commitment including action steps which they, as unofficial groups, hoped to take within a month after returning home. Discussions and plans are summarized. (JK)
