THE IETHBRIDOE HERALD Friday, May 25, 1973 Ontario nurses go to college TORONTO (CP) The la- dies-in-white, their bedside manner one of the few bright- ening moments dining a hos- pital stay, soon are to become part of the community college scene ill Ontano. With the announcement in January that the task of train- ing diploma-seeking nurses being assigned to the province's 22 colleges of ap- plied arts and technology, On- tano becomes the third prov- ince to put nursing instruction into the mam stream of edu- cation. Although there appeared small pockets of concern, the move is the realization of a goal, at least m Ontario. In 1932 a Canadian As- sociation report nursing education belonged within the general educational system of the country and has since pushed for such a move. The move means that the LUCILLE THOMPSON president FUR COAT TIME THE LETHBRfOGE FURRIERS PHONE 327-2209 elects officers Kappa Chapter.

Saskatchewan and Quebec have had nursing education in the main education stream for some time. Some provinces have nursing education div- ided between the hospital's nursing schools and separate educational institutions. There was concern over the quality of education when the Ontario move, scheduled for September, becomes reality. But Joan Macdonald, direc- tor of the College of Nurses of Ontario, which controls nurs- ing standards in the province, emphasized that students ttill continue to put in a minimum 750 hours of study in theory and hours of practical application at hospitals. She added that in most cases, the practical application reaches hours. The move mil allow the nursing students to become fully involved in the college community and gain a broader education. Dr. Helen Musallem of Ot- tawa, executive director of the Canadian Nurses' Associa- tion, said "there have been some very good hospital schools But community col- leges may utilize the hospital program even better." Dr. Musallem, who did a study for the CNA on nursing education in 1960, said the col- lege life for nursing students offers a challenge.

The wbole school is in mourning. Will you please re- print that column about the 17-year-old boy who met the same fate? It was a fantasy, but it made a terrific impres- sion on me. I believe it ap- peared in 1971 when I was a freshman. Thanks, Ann Can't Believe It DEAR FRIEND: Five of your classmates have written to ask the same favor. Here's the letter: Title: In Love With or How It Would Be If I Were Killed In an Automobile Acci- dent Agony claws my mind. I am a statistic. When I first got here I felt very much alone. I was overwhelmed grief and I expected to find sym- pathy. I found no sympathy. I saw only thousands of others whose bodies were as badly mangled as mine. I was given a number and placed in a category. The category was called "Traffic Fatalities." The day I died was an or- dinary school day. How I wish I had taken the bus! But I was too cool for the bus. I re- member how I wheedled the car out of Mom. "Special I pleaded. "All the kids drive.'' When the 2.50 bell rang I threw my books in the locker. I was free until 8 40 tomorrow morning' I ran to the parking lot ex- cited at the thought of driving a car and being my own boss. Fiee' It doesn't matter how the accident happened. I was goofing off going too fast. Taking crazy chances. But I was enjoying my freedom and having fun. The last thing I remember was passing an old lady who seemed to be going awfully slow. I heard a deaf- ening crash and felt a terrific jolt. Glass and steel flew ev- erywhere. My whole body seemed to be turning out. I heard myself scream. Suddenly I awakened. It was very quiet. A police offi- cer was standing over me. Then I saw a doctor. My body was mangled. I was saturated with blood. Pieces of jagged glass were sticking out all over. Strange that I couldn't feel anything. Hey, don't pull that sheet over my head. I can't be dead. I'm only 17. I've got a date tonight. I'm supposed to grow up and have a wonderful life. I haven't lived yet. I can't be dead. Later I was placed in a drawer. My folks had to iden- tify me. Why did thev have to see me like this? Why d'd I have to look at Mom's eyes when she faced the most ter- rible ordeal of her life? Dad suddenlv looked like an old man. He told the man in charge. is our son The funeral was a weird ex- perience. I saw all my rela- tives and friends walk toward the casket. They passed by, one bv one. and looked at me with the saddest eyes I've ever seen. Some of my buddies were crying. A few of the girls touched my hand and sobbed as they walked away. Please somebody wake me up' Get me out of here. I can't bear to see my mom and dad so broken up. My grandparents are so racked with grief they can barely walk. My brother and sister are like Zombies They move like robots. In a daze. Every- body. No one can believe this. And I can't beheve it either. Please don't bury me! I'm not dead.' I have a lot of liv- ing to do! I want to laugh and run again. I want to sing and dance. Please don't put me in the ground. I promise if you give me just one more chance, God, I'll be the most careful driver in the whole world. All I want is one more chance. Please, God, I'm only 17. DEAR ANN LANDERS: I am eagerly awaiting my 18th birthday so I can legally es- cape the clutches cf a lousy home life. I know my folks will suffer a great deal when ,1 go, but they are asking for it. I want to leave home so I can be independent, free to make my own decisions and learn from my mistakes. My dad says I am to spend the next four years of my life living at home and com- muting to a nearby univer- sity wliicli does not inter- est me at all. If I refuso Dad's offer he will not give me money to go to any other school. Also, be will consider my ''lack of cooperation" a slap in the face. I see no alternative except to leave home and work my way through college. I know it will take a few years longer but I am willing to do it. Please tell parents that it is their job to help their children grow, to prepare them for a life of their own, to encourage individuality and strength. Children need support, not ultimatums. Own Per- son DEAR PERSON: If jou'd rather work your way through college and be on your own, I see no reason for your par- ents to hold it .against you. Nor should you hold it against them because they refuse to finance your fcur years of college away from home. (It just might be they can't afr ford it. Do you have any idel what it My guess is that after you've flown the coop, you'll have a lot more respect for your parents And the com- forts you now take for granted will take on a wbole new meaning. Good luck to you, dear. THE BETTER HALF By Barnes Effective July 1st, 1973, Blue Cross is introducing a new- Deductible Free, Co-Insurance-Free Group Contract.
