Abstract

Since its inception, the guidance movement has gained increasing momentum in the United States. This consistent and rapid advancement has stimulated nurse educators to realize their responsibility of giving the student adequate guidance in the full development of her personality. This trend is of special significance to educators in Catholic schools of nursing, for the Church has ever held high the sacredness of the individual human personality, and has entrusted to them the privilege and responsibility of aiding the student nurse to the full development of her personality. Organized guidance programs in schools of nursing have evolved along the same pattern as those in general education, and efforts are being made to improve guidance practices consistent with higher education. It is the purpose of this study to investigate a method, through comparison of existing guidance practices in a selected group of Catholic schools of nursing, whereby a feasible plan of organization may be set up in our own school.
