State Sanatorium to Start Training
School for Nurses Instead of Em
ploying Catholic Sisters.
Dr. L. B. McBrayer, superintendent
of the State Sanatorium for the treat
ment of Tuberculosis, at Montrose,
when recently consulted about the re
port that Catholic sisters might be
asked to do the nursing at the State
Sanatorium gave out the following
For the present the nursing will be
done by graduate nurses, assisted by
some pupil nurses, with Miss A.
Blanche Coffin as Superintendent of
the department of nursing. A little
later a training school for the nurses
will be established. This training
school will do three things: First,
give a postgraduate course of a few
months to graduate nurses, paying
them in the mean time a reasonable
salary, and giving a certificate at the
close of the term of service. Second,
in connection with other general hos
pital nurses, giving a certificate at the
time of graduation. Third, it will con
duct a regular training school for
nurses, requiring the regular three
years' courses nd giving a diploma on
the completion of the same.
Miss Blanche A. Coffin, who is sup
erintendent of the department of nurs
ing and who will be at all times in
immediate charge of the nurses, is a
woman of refinement and culture.
She has had experience in handling
nurses at other hospitals and is
thoroughly - competent and reliable
from every standpoint. The corps of
physicians in connection with the in-
stution will eive reerular lectures tn
the nurses when the training school is
under way. and Miss Coffin will have
charge of the didactic and bedside in
struction from the nurse's standpoint.
