SCMUUH Again lgccrfeffillilifaliil Voiunteer Group Active
The faculty of the Methodist-Kahler School
of Nursing is proud to report the results of the
1954 resurvey of the school program by the
National Nursing Accrediting Service. Once
again the school program has been approved and
the name of our school appears on the official
list of the National League for Nursing.
You will recall that the school was surveyed
and granted its first national accreditation in
1946. Periodically, since that time, it has been
required to submit progress reports and has
remained on the approved list. However, to
stimulate continued improvement of nursing
education, all nursing schools with nationally
approved nursing programs are required to sub-
mit to resurveys at certain intervals, and in
September, 1953, our school was visited by Miss
Hazel Goff and Miss Margaret Giflin, represent-
atives from the National Nursing Accrediting
Service. The results of that survey granted us
accredited status for 1954. Owing to many
administrative and educational changes which
were in progress at that time, however, a resurvey
was advised and in August, 1954, Miss Katherine
Brim resurveyed the program. In November,
1954, we received the official notification of our
accreditation for 1955.
We hope that this report will give you
added reason to be proud of your alma mater
and, with your support, we can continue to
maintain our reputation as an outstanding
school of nursing.

. The. Rochester Methodist Hospital Auxil-
iary, which was organized last year, now has a
membership of 100 volunteer workers.
Auxiliary members can be identified in our
hospitals by their cherry-colored smocks. They
are becoming known as "The Pink Ladies."
They visit with the patients, read to them and
assist the nurses and nurse aids with many non-
professional duties which contribute to the gen-
eral comfort of the patient.
During the past year several projects were
undertaken by the group, including a Christmas
tea at Edith Mayo Hall for the students and
faculty of the school. Mrs. Milton Scholer and
Mrs. J. T. Priestly were in charge of the tea.
The decorations and refreshments were provided
by the members of the auxiliary, some of whom
also served as hostesses. Gay holiday favors,
designed by Mrs. Charles Edwards, brightened
the trays of patients who were hospitalized dur-
ing the holidays. Several members of the group
volunteered their services to the school and
worked in the library assisting with the proces-
sing of new books for the hospital sub-libraries.
A permanent project which has been undertaken
is the establishment of an Information Desk in
the main lobby of the Rochester Methodist
Hospital. A member of the group is stationed
at the desk from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday
through Friday. Each person works a 3-hour
shift. A recent addition to the services provided
by the organization is a shopping cart for
The officers for the year are Mrs. Harry
Blackmun, president, Mrs. S. G. Suddendorf,
vice president, Mrs. Howard Vtfest, secretary,
Mrs. james VVillis, treasurer.
Membership in the Auxiliary is nondenom-
inational and open to all women of the com-
munity who are interested in serving. Each new
group of volunteers will be given the course of
instruction. In the hospitals the "Pink Ladies"
function under the supervision of Miss Esther
Roesti and Miss Lyla Olson,superintendents of
