FROM THE PHILADelphia Medical News.-“Dr. Fullerton has clearly discerned the requirements in the training of nurses for this special work, namely, the inculcation of knowledge that will give an intelligent idea of the work before them and the insistence upon habits of promptness and forethought. For both the physician and nurse thi book presents the important points in a clear and impressive way.”
