Radcliffe College and Massachusetts General Hospital are planning a joint study of nursing education to define the relationship of the liberal arts college to the nursing profession.

The study, sponsored by a Rockefeller Foundation grant, is being undertaken in view of the "ever-increasing number of young women who wish to obtain the preparation for nursing and an undergraduate degree at the same time," according to Professor Everett C. Hughes, University of Chicago sociologist, who will direct the study.

Radcliffe and the Massachusetts General Hospital have offered since 1946 a coordinated program of nursing and liberal arts which terminates in a bachelor of arts and a diploma in nursing after five years of study. After graduation from Radcliffe, the student receives special instruction for two years at the Massachusetts General School of Nursing.
