Renewal of the accreditation by the National League for Nursing was granted the School of Nursing again this year.
A unique instrument, a microscope for delicate ear surgery, was put to use this year. The West German microscope was described as a binocular-type affording up to 40 power magnification and containing its own source of illumination. The men in the Department of Otolaryngology are very pleased with the microscope. Sister St. Robert said that St. Joseph Hospital was the first hospital in the area to have such an instrument.
