In a previous paper1 reports were presented on three private hospital schools of nursing in which the students were observed with reference to tuberculosis. The hospital of School I operated a tuberculosis division where every student nurse at some time before graduation was compelled to spend three months. In the hospitals of Schools II and III there was no special division but occasional tuberculous patients were admitted for both diagnosis and treatment. These observations have been continued and have brought about so much enlightenment among the personnel that some of our hospitals are now taking steps to control the disease
