DIRECTOR OF NURSING
To pay tribute to the graduates of the Swedish..
American Hospital School of Nursing is a real
pleasure. A look into the past fills me with
gratitude for the inspiration I have received, for
the dedication of the graduates and the traditions
they founded. Mere words cannot express my
heartfelt thanks for knowing intimately so many
wonderful nurses who are coping with today's
The future promises to be even more challenging,
but I am confident that the nurses of tomorrow
will continue to utilize the inspiration of the past
and strive to insure that nursing remains actively
dedicated to serving mankind. May God Almighty
grant you the wisdom and the courage to work
for achievement, for fulfillment, and joy in
making your contribution to nursing.
Miss Miller R.N., B.S.N., M.S.N.Ed.
Mrs. Goodsell R.N.
DIRECTOR OF EDUCATION
No matter where you are in the program of study,
just beginning or on the threshold of graduation,
you have indicated a desire to assist those unable
to provide their own health needs. Nursing is
expanding in its functions as well as in the
demands placed on the practioner. There is much
to learng a porgram in nursing can only acquaint
you with some of the experiences of professional
nursing. The school strives to help you attain a
solid foundation from which you may continue
your quest for knowledge.
Whatever the future may be, I would pray that
each of you might experience the truth of Pau1's
words, "I have strength for anything through
Him who gives me power."

coaxed into "trying again" by Mrs. Crowley.
I-Ier kindness, understanding, cheery smile,
and words of encouragement tempered with
determination spell success for those who will
put forth an effort.

m- I-Iousemothers are our mothers away from
home. It is their duty to see that students
are in their rooms or have signed out prop-
erly for the night. Students on the "sick
list" receive nourishments and have their
temperatures taken during the evening by
one of the four. Dorm refrigerators would
lose their charm if these ladies did not make
daily trips to replenish supplies. Pacifying
dates, listening to tales of hom esiekness,
and helping to boost the general morale are
in their line of duty. For all this, we thank
Mrs. Mueller, secretary, handles all school
correspondence fand does mimeograph

Besides mana ing her paperwork with great
efficiency, she always has a cheery smile
and a kind word for everyone passing by
