It may he said that the keynote of
the situation Ins in the fact that
whereas in former oajs the child's
riLirse was purely nurse, today fche is
governess as well.
The great essential for any girl
adopting the profession of children's
nurse is that she must have a great
love for the wee folk, to be able to en
ter into their feelings, to sympathize
with their sorrows and joys, a child's
nurse must not be a cjnic. She must
know the importance of little things to
children, must know that the mole
h.lls of grownups are the mountains
cf tos and girls. Nowadays the chil
dren s nurse must be a comrade and
companion as well ts mentor to her
young charges, but the latter role must
never be overemphasized.
It is well. too. for any girl desiring
to become a nurse cf this kind to go
somewhere and obtain the proper
training for the position. It is a bit,
advantage when seeking employment.
Briefly, the nurse of children must
be able to superintend the children's
