PREFACE IN arranging these chapters on bacteriology for the use of pupil nurses, no attempt has been made to do more than to endeavor to bring the essentials of an enormous subject into a practical arrangement, which will serve to introduce young nurses to one of the most important phases of nursing viz., the prevention of infection. The suggested schedule for laboratory work was compiled from several outlines which are in use in different schools for nurses, the courses varying from five exercises of one hour each, to twenty exercises of two hours each one seemingly inade- more time than is quate and the other requiring feasible in the majority of schools. This work should not be attempted in the classroom, but should be done in a well-equipped laboratory under the direction of a bacteriologist. The class work may easily be done by the nurse teachers, but they should not attempt the laboratory exercises except after extended bacteriological work. The schedule should not be regarded as inflex- ible, as numerous opportunities for the observation of material from well-known cases in the wards will arise, and their use serve to impress more strongly upon the pupils the manifestations of particular infections. Neither should the arrangement of the chapters be immovable the laboratory exercises and class work should go hand in hand. SCHEDULE FOR TWELVE LABORATORY EXERCISES OF TWO-HOUR PERIODS Exercise I.
