REGISTRATION OF NURSES. When the International Congress of Nurses met at the Church House, Westminster, on Tues- day, reference was made to the question of State Registration. The Hon. S. HoHand, chairman of the London Hospital, said opinion on the subject was very far from being unanimous. By registration the doctors and the public would be lulled into a false sense of security, thinking that they had got a good nurse; yet everybody knew that pass- ing an examination did not make a woman a good nurse. Once the State guaranteed that a woman was a fit nurse she could not be removed for sleep- ing at night, for neglect, for frightening child- ren, or for want of tact or gentleness, or for taking too much drink or taking drugs provided she did not create a scandal, except those mak- ing the charge were prepared to prove it before a council, and they must realise how extremely difficult it would be unless she was drinking to such an extent that it had become a public scandal.
