Nursing school is no place for* a girl if she wants an "easy 1 " 'ducation, but if she wants a .ense of deep satisfaction accorrt- jlished through much study and nard work she should consider jeing a nurse, is the opinion of Vliss Marcia Andersbn pf Algona/ Marcia, daughter of Mr and Mrs Everett Anderson, is a junior this year in Iowa Methodist School of Nursing,' Des Moines. Vlr Anderson is a rural mail carrier. . "This task of becoming a nurse is not simple and no girls should enter a school of nursing with that attitude. But the pride in achievement, in feeling that you are becoming a real Hurse, can only come through hard work," says Marcia. * / • Much of Marcia's first year Was spent in taking classes at Drake University. Now, in her junior year, she will take her specialties. She thinks she will prefer pediatrics, which is the nursing of children. ' "I like people and/want to help them. .That is why I want v 'tpibe a nurse. Sometimes I am asked about the pay. A nurse make an adequate salary but one should never go into the profession for just that reason." Graduations? J-wo years off but Marcia thinks she'd 'like to stay on at Iowa Methodist and work in the Raymond Blank Memoria wing. After Marcia's grandfather died Two sons prece d c d him in death. ive years ago she decided she ' ' would make it her life's work to help people in sickness. This conviction was deepened when her aunt died just a few weeks be- ore Marcia entered the school nursing. The day t before she e-ft for.-. the school; her other randfather suffered a stroke. "Some girls say they'd rather nurse strangers than their rela- ives but I get greater satisfaction 'rom nursing my own relatives." -She finds pleasure in' her daily 8-hour floor shifts this summer. "People sometimes ask me if the patients don't 'get grouchy and hard to take care of. I can truthfully say I enjoy working with all of them. If some,.get a little difficult I remind myself that they are sick and then I am thankful that I am able to care for them." She likes to do many things in the social line. She enjoys tennis and swimming. She attends mixers to which students from Drake University, Iowa State University and Simpson College are invited. She gets home once or twice a month and enjoys every minute of her visits there The world looks upon Marcia pretty much as Marcia looks upon the world. She is a favorite at the school of nursing In the above picture Marcia i at the left, with Sue Graham another student nurse, in the center, talking to Chaplain Scheerer of the hospital. H. G.
