Data on professional nurses in Pennsylvania for the period 1958-1968 is brought together, correlated and presented in table form. Enrollment in associate and baccalaureate programs increased while diploma programs changed little. The age level of professional nurses is rising in Pennsylvania and the U.S. as a whole. Between 1949 and 1966 the number of employed hospital and office nurses increased, but private duty and public health nursing declined. About 70 0/0 of Pennsylvania nurses are married. Distribution of nurses by age, educational level, marital status, employment status, and type of position is compared for Pennsylvania's six Human Service Regions, twelve Standard Metropolitan Statistical Areas, and 67 counties in table form.
