Array NURSING   TODAY
JAPANESE NURSES
VISIT
UBC School of Nursing was host for
84 members of the Japanese Nursing Association on June 24 for a one-day program
during their tour of the North American
west coast health facilities. The nurses
were on their way to the International
Council of Nursing Congress in Los Angeles.
Masako Fukuzawa, executive officer
for JNA, expressed appreciation for the
program and said visiting nurses were
greatly impressed with the valuable experience gained during the exchanges of
views with UBC faculty.
Profs. Kirsten Weber and Betty
Cawston of UBC arranged lectures on primary health care methods in British Columbia and on ways primary care is incorporated into the curriculum. The visitors
toured the teaching facilities and clinical areas and had opportunities for informal meetings with faculty members.
Prof. Weber made the visitors, some
of whom spoke no English, welcome by giving her opening remarks in well-rehearsed
Japanese.

the Japanese Nursing Association, (second

RECENT THESES
REFRESHER COURSE CANDIDATES
A recent Master of Science in Nursing study has examined the characteristics of nurses who have expressed interest in refresher courses for graduate
nurses and the extent to which these
nurses may be a potential source of manpower. Ms. Saly Anne MacLean, under the
supervision of Sheila Stanton, carried
out the study using a survey methodology.
A mail-back questionnaire was developed
for the purpose by the investigator.
The questionnaire was completed by
199 nurses who had expressed interest in
a course at a large metropolitan post-
secondary educational institution. Analysis showed that those nurses who expressed interest differed somewhat from
what is known about the general population of inactive nurses.
Ms. MacLean concluded that the potential source of nurse manpower supply
is less than might be indicated from the
numbers who express interest. Twenty-
three per cent were already employed as
nurses when they indicated interest in
such courses. Although 66 per cent of the
remaining 153 nurses indicated they did
plan to resume active status on completion of such a course, most (57.4 per
they would prefer part-

activities and responsibilities.

thesis entitled "A Descriptive Study of
Nursing Refresher Course Candidates" you

of Nursing, at 228-7441. A copy of the
