All of the hospital is being converted totally to the Metric System for drugs, measurements, diets, fluids, etc. rather than the existing mixture of Metric and Apothecary systems. To achieve this standardization, education was needed. This article tells how this was achieved and includes lists of equivalents as well as a sample listing of all drugs and solutions in use.
The previous and historical Greek prejudice against nursing and nurses is being slowly dissolved because of the efforts of Queen Sophia and because of the great need for nurses, especially in public health. The writer then deals specifically with the education at the Polyclinic school. She consistently emphasizes that most of the education is of the vocational type, but the future is more promising.

[Article 27:4] The Hospital as a College for the Student Nurse. — November 1928
Creator: Richards, Esther Loring, 1885-1956
Training for the nurse was opposed originally because of the idea that the nurse worked FOR the physician rather than WITH him, that training would lead to the nurse requiring reasons for performing her role, "that the cultivation of ignorance has always been considered a safeguard of power." Dr. Richards writes that nursing is a profession and therefore must develop on its own using the "hospital as a college." She discusses building the policies of nursing education on certain constructive lines from the selection of appropriate candidates to their individual adjustment to her practice, the use of the "laboratory method" of learning. (Commencement address delivered June, 1928)
