No longer are male nursing students rare, as Steven Grimshaw points out while taking a patient's blood pressure. of raising a family, Ruth finds time for needlework and sewing, and was on the LAVC co-ed golf team last semester. She couldn't fit golfing into her busy schedule this year, but retains her interest in the sport. The male nursing student represents more than fallout from the rising consciousness of America-he is part of the process. Alan Hermanson, who is studying at Valley to be a Registered Nurse, is by definition a pioneer, but is perhaps too busy to reflect much on that aspect of his career. He is currently working toward a B.A, in psychiat- ric nursing through UC Berkeley's "University With- out Walls" program. To that end he does supervised counseling at Olive View Hospital's Outpatient Clinic, and serves an internship in psychodrama and group techniques at the Center for Psychodrama Training at Crossroads Hospital in Van Nuys. He cited Valley College's respected program and forward-looking approach as among the reasons for his attendance here. Having previously earned an A.A. in drama at LAVC, Alan is still interested in filmmaking. He also paints, is a licensed private pilot, a songwriter, and, he says wistfully, "used to play guitar." Someday he hopes for the time to play it again. Alan has noted a few negative reactions to men in nursing, but feels the trend is generally well-re- Nursing education, like any other program, has its lighter moments. Carol Mayan practices her art on John Rosenfield, a reluctant "victim," i - 1 'ffffj-., "' " . ceived. Besides psychiatric nursing in which he is specializing, he enjoys work in the obstetrical de- livery room. Debbie Kerr has wanted to be a nurse since she was a child, inspired by a family that produced several nurses. At 16 she began doing hospital volunteer work, and after high school she took a Nurse's Aide course. She still works as a Nurse's Aide at Valley Presbyterian Hospital while pursuing her nursing education at Valley College. As a Regent chairman on the executive board of the Student Nursing Association of California, travel to and from meetings and conventions must some- how be fitted into Debbie's incredibly active life. After graduating from Valley ishe can't help wishing LAVC had a four-year nursing programl, Debbie's goal is a B.S. in nursing. Her first interest is in the medical-surgical field, but she is also "fasci- nated" by obstetrics, having taken a La Maze class in natural childbirth. Debbie takes an optimistic view of the changing world of nursing. The trend toward nurse-midwives and nurse-practitioners is not only earning the profession more respect, but "creating more oppor- tunities for nurses," Debbie feels. Typically, Debbie has numerous outside interests -skiing and tennis among them, and also typically, she hopes to find more time for them someday. Nursing students are a special breed. Besides the obvious qualifications of competence and compas- sion, they have the apparent ability to be constantly active-as if they had discovered the 70-minute hour, 25-hour day. 83

A I it ii Fr Nurse Joan Langer prepares a hypodermic needle. O-Minute Hour By Adrienne Pa ynter Illustrated by Robert Lachman lt has become axiomatic recently that the nursing profession is undergoing profound change. The challenge to nursing education is equally profound, for nursing students must be prepared not only for the substantial demands of the modern medical world, but for all the possibilities and probabilities in the future of nursing. Changes aside, LAVC nursing students display those reassuring strengths for which the professional nurse is famous: energy, efficiency, and commit- ment. Mrs. Ruth Mitchell, for 20 years a Licensed Vocational Nurse, and now studying to be a Regis- tered Nurse, displays an enthusiasm as fresh as a volunteer "candystriper's." "Nursing," says Ruth, "is a wide-open field," which she is always happy to recommend to young people who show a "real interest." Ruth takes pride in the expanding role of nurses as "part of the medical team," rather than the obsolete image of "hand- maidens." From her years of practical experience in the field, Ruth knows that "hospitals care which school a nurse graduated from," and chose Valley for its highly rated nursing program. Despite the demands of her career, and the stresses

There is no set fashion yardstick, no barometer to measure what's "hip" looking as opposed to what's tacky . . . these days, what feels good is what dictates acceptability, al- though the leading fashion magazines, for both men and women, whistle to a fastid- iously different tune. With fashion designers imploring people to shave off their eyebrows, reshape their liplines, color their finger and toenails every hue from black to puce, the fashion industry plays fashion "footsies" with mil- lions of egos around the world. There is no absolute or final word on what's tasteful, and yet each year the professional clothiers set up frantic pro- duction schedules in the month to month rush to get out next season's new "line"- somebody out there is waiting with baited breath. A most perceptive group, these masters of the cloth are. Dabbling in fantasy and visual hocus pocus lonly standard tricks of the tradej the fashion industry represents a Disneyland coalition of image makers. And why not? If the psychologists are right, amongst man's strongest drives is his need for stimulus variability. Change, par- ticularly visual change, provides a wel- come distraction from the humble monot- ony of day-to-day routine. And what else, besides fashion in its continual state of flux, provides a more suitable medium? It seems dressing to accent and project the view people have of themselves and others plays a predomi- nant role in costume selection. On the Valley campus one is sure to see alittle and a lot of everything from bargain basement specials to expensive "one-of-a- kind" originals. Although the mode is largely casual, many men and women choose to dress with conspicuous formality, while others take the more blase view that anything comfortable is appropriate. Parading about campus, students give a panoramic view of varying fashion trends.
