The establishment of an Auckland Hospital Board Nurses' Training School, with A grade status, to train all pupil nurses in the employ of the board was recommended by the nursing education sub-committee at a meeting of the board last evening. It was stated that nurses attending the school would be required to be freed from all ward duties. Th sub-committee considered the training centre should remain at the Auckland Hospital in the meantime, and that when Ward 19 became vacant the building should be equipped and utilised for the purpose of providing additional lecture and demonstration room facilities for the nursing staff in training, in order to relieve the overcrowded state of the existing lecture rooms, which were taxed to capacity.
The board expressed its appreciation of the work of the sub-committee and referred the matter to the finance committee.
