Adjourned Meeting of Scottish Division

Extract

The adjourned meeting of the Scottish Division was held in the Royal College of Physicians, Edinburgh, on 27 November, 1897. Dr. Urquhart was in the chair, and there were also present Drs. Campbell Clark, Carlyle Johnstone, Macpherson, Middlemass, G. M. Robertson, Rutherford, Watson, Watt, Yellowlees, and Turnbull (Secretary). In accordance with the remit from the Annual Meeting of the Association, the Division took into consideration the report of the Educational Committee giving the proposed amended regulations for the nursing certificate. Considerable discussion took place, and it was agreed to submit the following suggestions to the Educational Committee: 1. That the minimum period of training should be fixed at two years. 2. That Rule 3 should (consequent on the preceding suggestion) be deleted. 3. That section a. of Rule 5 should read—“Systematic lectures, in addition to the practical demonstrations provided for below, by the medical staff,” etc. 4. That sections b. and c. of Rule 5 should be combined, and should read—“Clinical demonstrations of mental and bodily disease, and practical instruction in sick nursing and in first aid, to be given by the medical staff. At least twelve demonstrations, each of one hour's duration, must be given in each year of training, and no attendant will be admitted to examination who has not attended at least nine demonstrations in each year.” 5. That the last clause of section c., Rule 9, should read—“The written questions being confined to subjects included in the Handbook.” 6. That in the written examination the maximum of questions to be answered shall be six, and the minimum time allowed for answering three hours.
