GOVERNMENT NOTICES

COLONIAL SECRETARY'S OFFICE
No. 22.
TRAINING OF NURSES IN UNITED KINGDOM
It is hereby notified for general information that the Colonial
Office is prepared to give all assistance possible to approved
candidates for training in the United Kingdom as Nurses. Any
would-be applicants are requested to apply through the Chief
Medical Officer. Applications, which will be considered by a
Committee appointed by the Governor, should be made approx-
imately nine months before the date on which it is desired to
embark upon the training course. For students from tropical
and subtropical zones the most suitable time of entry, for climatic
reasons, is in the late spring (April May).
2. In this connection the following information may be of
interest to possible applicants:-
FINANCIAL SUPPORT
Student Nurses receive an annual training grant of Two
Hundred Pounds (200. 0. 0.) per annum, from which deductions
are made for board and lodging (when accommodation is provided
at the hospital) plus contributions to National Insurance and
Superannuation Scheme. This leaves the student approximately
Eighty Pounds (80. 0. 0.) per annum net which allows little or
no margin for holidays or savings towards return passage. Private
students should therefore be able to rely on an additional Twenty-
Five Pounds (25. 0. 0.) per annum allowance from their parents
or relatives plus the cost of their return passages.
LENGTH OF TRAINING
The Course of General Nursing S.R.N. (State Registered
Nurse) is a minimum of three years though some of the Hos-
pitals require students to sign a four years contract.

OFFICIAL GAZETTE


Midwifery training S.C.M. .(State Certified Midwife) is
one year (divided into two periods of 6 months each) if taken
after the S.R.N. Certificate has been obtained. If midwifery is
taken alone without first obtaining the S.R.N. Certificate, the
course takes two years, divided into two periods of 18 months and
6 months respectively. The former course is far more satisfactory,
i.e. S.R.N. followed by one year for S.C.M.
SPECIALISED HOSPITALS
Having obtained her S.R.N. Certificate there are other speci-
alised courses besides midwifery which a nurse can take:-
(a) Tuberculosis nursing one year
(b) Mental Nursing two years
(c) Mental Defective Nursing two years
(d) Orthopaedic Nursing one year
(e) District Nursing six months
(f) Health Visitor Training six months after completing
the first period of midwifery training.
Fever Hospitals in the United Kingdom do not deal with the
Tropical Fevers met with in Colonial Territories and training
in a Fever Hospital is not recommended for Colonial Nurses.
If Mental Nursing is taken as a specialised subject after
obtaining State Registration, the training lasts 2 years. If the
training is done in a Mental Hospital in the first place, the course
lasts 3 years.
EDUCATION
Since the improved terms of service are now attracting more
and better educated girls from the United Kingdom into the
Nursing Profession, Training Hospitals are insisting on a higher
standard of education. The Cambridge School Certificate is not
obligatory but it is the standard expected by most Hospitals from
their Nurse trainees. It is appreciated that this standard may
not always have been reached by applicants who are otherwise
well qualified; in such cases the absolute minimum educational
qualification should be Junior Cambridge plus two years of train-
ing in a Government Institution as teacher, local nurse, midwife
etc.
APPLICATION
Should be made in the first instance to the Chief Medical
Officer who will provide the necessary forms, and any further
information necessary. Any persons already in Government em-
ploy must submit their applications through the Head of their
Dept.-M.P. 11796.
The foregoing notice is published by command.

F. M. NOAD,
Acting Colonial Secretary.
