Nursing in Virginia.
Virginia State Council of Higher Education, Richmond.
Prefacing its comments with an explanatory note concerning the reason for its organization, purpose, and procedure, the Committee utilizes half its report statistically documenting various factors in nursing practice and nursing education in Virginia. The statistics are based on a study, "Nursing and Health Care in Virginia", by Thomas C. Barker and Benjamin T. Cullen and reveal a nursing shortage in that state. The second half of the report consists of the recommendations suggested by the Committee in the areas of practice in nursing, working environment of nurses, recruitment, selection and retention of nursing students, education of nurses, cooperation and coordination in planning and delivery of health services, and financial support for nursing education and nursing practice. Two appendixes geographically locating Virginia cities and counties by region completes the report. For previous studies see "A Report of Progress, Dec., 1967" and "Future Patterns of Health Care with Emphasis on Utilization of Nursing Personnel", 1968. (AG)
