The Profession in a Class by Itself.
Parsons, Margaret
Nursing Outlook, v34 n6 p270-75 Nov-Dec 1986
The author discusses two significant directions taken by nursing that appear to have governed the profession's transition from self-confidence to obsessive self-scrutiny. These are the decision to seek legitimacy for the profession within the university and the unquestioning acceptance of Flexner's description of professions. (CT)
