This Day In Norwood History-January 7, 1961-Norwood School Joins Hospital To Train Girls

Plan Will Provide Practical Nurses

1961 Henry O. Peabody Nursing Students

NORWOOD, Jan. 7—The first class of the new School of Nursing at the Henry O. Peabody School for Girls in this town is participating with the Norwood Hospital in the opening of a new training program which will enable these young women to receive vocational training at the highest level in the practical nurse field at no personal cost.

As the result of the signing of a contract recently by Fred A. Carlson, president of the Norwood Hospital Corp., and Philip O. Coakley, Supt. of the Norwood public school system, a group of 19 students from 10 surrounding towns ranging in age from 17 to 43 will receive a great deal of their training at the hospital.

The girls were introduced to the nurses and taken on a tour of the hospital by Charles Richardson, hospital administrator, to become acquainted with its various departments and facilities.

During the five months of instruction at the school which includes nursing arts, sciences, nutrition and cooking, they will spend two mornings a week at the hospital in supervised practice in the elementary nursing arts. After completion of these courses, the students will go into the hospital for supervised clinical experience with supplementary instruction for ten months under the direction of Barbara Neiderberger, clinical supervisor.

The program is exported to make an important contribution to the community as the licensed practical nurses are recognized as a vital cog to supplement the professional nurses.

Following graduation the members of the class will be required to pass the Massachusetts State Board examination in order to qualify as licensed practical nurses.
