Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 2, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta Wodnmday, Z, 1970 THf tEIHBRIDGt HERAIB 21 From Three-Year To Two-Year N.B. Nurses Enter New Program SAINT JOHN, N.B. (CP) When Uic Saint Jolin School of Nursing opens its doors for its first classes Sept. 14, its 130 students will be taking part in a new kind of nursing educa- tion. The new school will be the first in New Brunswick to in- clude a two-year instead of a year program, general education courses and Indepen- dence from a specific hospital. It will replace the existing nursing schools at St. Joseph's Hospital and. the Saint John General Hospital here, al- though they have not closed yet. St. Joseph's will graduate its last class next year, and Saint Jolm General will have two more graduating classes. The new school will accom- modate 130 students a year, 10 .more than the combined total of the two schools it is replac- ing.

COW BRAND BAKING SODA For irritated skin Apply a paste of Cow Brand and water id affected areas. Gives quick relief from sunburn, wind- burn, insect bites and hives. COW BRAND Most ot the innovations in the new school were suggested hi Portrait of Nursing, a theses by the late Dr. Catherine Mac- Laggan, first director of the sdiool of nursing at the Uni- versity of New Brunswick. While the New Brunswick As- sociation of Registered Nurses accepted Uie book's recommen- dations, the New Brunswick government at first rejected them, said Anne D. Thorne, director of the new school. NEED IliGGER SCHOOLS For this reason she was not sure if the government would be willing to approve more schools which implement some of the book's recommendations. is need for bigger, fewer schools of nursing as Uu's one will she said. Many of Ihe 11 nursing schools in .New Brunswick were not large enough to do a proper job. The course length of the new school lias b e n shortened h> two years by cutting out repiti- tion and overlapping, and by reducing the time student nurses used to spend working in hospitals to winch nursing schools were attached. Instead, students will receive their practical t r a i n ing mor- nings in laboratory facilities at Saint John General and in a four-week concentrated p r o- gram for both summers of the course. The school year will run from Sept. 14 to June 30, with half the class taking practical train- ing next July and the other half in August. Afternoons will be devoted to classroom theory, taught by the nursing faculty, whose mem- bers all have bacehlor of nurs- ing degrees. Students will have the option of choosing one course In paint- ing, music, drama or dance, and will be required to take courses in psychology and so- ciology to be taught by instruc- tors from the University of New Brunswick's branch here. MAY LIVE OUTSIDE The new school will accept married and older applicants and will allow students to live outside the residence. About half of the tentative first class will be from the Saint John area, about 40 per cent from other parts of the province, the remainder from outside New Brunswick. Miss Thorne, a 1953 graduate of the Saint John General School of Nursing and its asso- ciate education director for eight years, has a bachelor's degree of nursing from McGill univei-sity and ter master of education from Teachers' Col- lege. Columbia University, New York. "I'm very enthused about the new she says. "I wouldn't have returned to Saint Jolm except for something ex- citing like this." She said nursing' education 1 has not kept pace with changes in society and in general edu- cation, and there is need for a new approach. To her, the new nursing school is a step in the right direction.

Ann Land ers DEAR ANN LANDERS: I'm an 48-year-old girl with a problem that has been bugging me for months. I can't sleep. It seems I put off going to bed by doing all sorts of crazy things late at night like cleaning closets, polishing shoes, sewing buttons. 1 busy myself with chores because I know 1 won't be able to sleep and I hate the tossing and turning. The main reason I can't sleep is because I worry about what will happen to me if I don't get enough rest. I worry about getting sick, looking haggard, fainting from exhaustion and tilings like that. Some mornings I'm certain 1 didn't sleep at all. Is this possible? Later in the day I remember bits and pieces of dreams. If a person dreams it means they slept, doesn't it? You can see how mixed up I am. This letter is being written at A.M. Can you help me? Owl. DEAR OWL: Most people get more sleep than they realize and as much as their bodies require unless, of course, there is an unusual amount of emotional stress. Insomniacs would have leas trouble sleeping if they went, to bed approximately the same time every night and planned on just "resting." People who busy themselves cleaning closets and writing letters until the wee hours of the morning will not sleep better when they do go to bed. Most insom- niacs suffer more from worrying about their insomnia than from the damage done by lack of sleep, DEAR ANN wire collect the name and address of the woman in North Carolina who is sure she has E.S.P. She claims shs knows what is going to happen in ad- vance and stated several instances where she was correct but no one would listen. 1 will not only listen, 1 will pay her plane fare to Indi- anapolis. We will then go together to Las Vegas and on to the gaming tables at Monte Carlo. I am not kidding Ann. If you help me locate her I will cut you in. DEAR R.R.J.: No deal, Dad. If the lady has these ex- traordinary powers she could go to Las Vegas and Monte Carlo without you and without ME, too. I'm not interested.
