To His Excellency, Hon. EDward F. Dunne,
Governor of the State of Illinois.
Sir: The Illinois State Board of Nurse Examiners presents its
first annual report of the work accomplished during the year ending
September 30, 1914, with a deep sense of the responsibilities attached
to the importance of offering any definite outline of work accomplished.
The generous response of the nurses of Illinois to the opportunities
offered by the present law, and particularly those pertaining to a six
months' waiver, enabling graduates of schools giving a two years' course
of training, to present themselves for examination, has been a particular
source of gratification to the members of the board. In this way the
profession has indicated its appreciation of the need of standards and a
desire that they be maintained. The following pages will show in a
detailed manner some of the constructive work of the board and the
manner of bringing it to a successful issue. The fundamental principal
of the act creating this board is that poorly trained and inadequately
equipped women shall not undertake the responsibilities for which they
are not properly prepared. jMindful of our duty in this regard, we have
striven at all times to carry into force and effect the full intent of
Any work of this kind can ne^•er be done without a certain depend-
ence upon community environment. Cooperation, and all that it means,
bears a strong relation to any finished work. In this regard, the board
wishes to express its belief in the wisdom of the removal of its head-
quarters from Chicago to the State Capitol at Springfield. The courtesy
and kindness of the officers of the State and the members of other State
boards have assisted materially in making possible many of the matters
related in the following pages.
The growth of the work has demonstrated to the board the necessity
of making an increase in the appropriation above that granted by the
'Forty-eighth General Assembly. In this way, by having more office
assistance and by making it possible to develop a better organization,
the bulk of work can more easily be taken care of without interfering
with the routine procedure of the regular activities. During the past
year the board has paid into the State treasury $2,616 in excess of the
appropriation of $5,130 granted by the Forty-eighth General Assembly.
With the desire that the ultimate end of serving the State and the
profession may be the result of a conscientious effort of your board, we
beg Your Excellency to accept this report as a tangible proof of some
of the deeds made possible during the past year and of some of the needs
desired for the year that is to come. May each year increase the effi-
ciency of this work and may it find, at all times, a place of understand-
ing end a power of development in the scheme of work in the State of

FIRST ANNUAL REPORT OF ILLINOIS STATE BOARD OF
OEGANIZATIOX A^D MEETINGS.
The State Board of Xiirse Examiners was organized on:
September with three members; Miss Walsh, Chicago; Miss
Chiibbnck, Eockford, and Miss Tittman, Springfield. Miss Walsh was
elected president and Miss Tittman secretary and treasurer.
Fourteen meetings were held during the year five for examination—
purposes and nine for the transaction of official business. Of these
meetings, ten were held in Chicago, three in Springfield and one in
Section 3 of the law provides that "the board shall, from
time to time, adopt rules governing the examination of applicants for
registration, not inconsistent with the provisions of the law." At a
meeting held September 20, 1913, the following rules were adopted:
RULES GOVERNING THE EXAMINATIONS OF THE ILLINOIS STATE:
BOARD OF NURSE EXAMINERS.
Application for registration under the provisions of "An Act to pro-
vide for the registration of nurses" shall be presented to the Illinois State
Board of Nurse Examiners "in writing, and shall in every instance be
accompanied by the examination fee of ten ($10.00) dollars, together with
satisfactory proof that the applicant is residing in the State of Illinois, is
of good moral character, and is at least twenty-two (22) years of age at time
of making application."
2. Nurses otherwise qualified shall be entitledto make application for
registration as follows:
First An applicant who "is a graduate of and has a diploma from an
accredited school of nurses connected with a. general hospital requiring a
systematic course of at least three (3) years' training."
Second "Application may be made by one who under the rules of an
accredited school of nurses will be entitled to receive a diploma within three
(3) months following the date of tiling said application, but no certificate
shall be issued to such applicant until he or she has received such diploma
and has satisfactorily passed the prescribed examinations."
Third Applicants "who at time of application shall have graduated and
received diploma from a school for nurses connected with any hospital of
good standing, requiring a systematic course of at least two (2) years'
training, and shall have obtained in any hospital of good standing, one (1)
year's additional training in subjects not adequately taught in the school
for nurses from which they graduated."
Foicrth Applicants "who at time of application shall have graduated

of good standing, requiring a systematic course of at least two (2) years'
training," and stiall have filed application prior to December 31st, 1913.
3. Application blanks may be procured from the secretary of the board
upon application. Printed instructions will be found on each blank and all
questions must be answered, all instructions conformed to, and all state-
ments filled out in the applicant's own handwriting, under oath, and be
properly attested. Applications must be received by the secretary of the
board at least fifteen (15) days prior to the examination.
4. In no case will a person be admitted to examination who has not
properly attended to the preliminary steps.
5. If, for any justifiable reason, the applicant is unable to take the
examination at the appointed time, upon due notice of the fact to the secre-
tary, he may be transferred to the next session, without re-application.
6. In all cases the application papers will be retained by the secretary
of the board. The fee will not be returned if the applicant, having entered
upon the examination, is found not eligible for registration, but said appli-
be subsequently examined without fee.
7. will be sent by the secretary, a card of admission to
1. The Illinois State of Nurse Examiners shall meet not less fre-
quently than twice a year for the purpose of holding examination for nurses
who wish to be known as Registered Nurses.
"Notices stating the time and place for the holding of such meetings
shall be published in at least one (1) newspaper of general circulation in
each of the cities of Chicago and Springfield, and also in at least one (1)
journal devoted to the interests of professional nursing, at least thirty (30)
days and not more than sixty (60) days before the date set for holding the
meeting, such written notice of said examinations shall also be sent by mail
to every person whose application for examination has been approved and
is on file," and also to every school for nurses of good standing, in Illinois,
at least thirty (30) days prior to the meeting.
2. At the opening of the examination each applicant shall present with
the card of admission, his or her diploma from the school for nurses from
which he or she has graduated. Each applicant will be furnished with an
envelope containing a numbered card upon which the applicant shall write
his or her name, sealing the envelope and using the number on the upper
right-hand corner of all examination papers. The sealed envelope .containing
the signed card will, at the conclusion of the written examination be handed
to the secretary of the board, and shall not be opened until all the papers

4. Examinations may be written or may, in part, consist of practical
demonstrations, according to the discretion of the examining members of the
board. All examinations shall be conducted by at least three (3) members
of the board, not graduates of the same school.
5. All written examinations shall be on paper furnished by the board.
Answers are to be written in the order of the questions and the questions
not copied. Papers containing the questions must be returned, intact, with
6. All applicants detected in trying to give or obtain aid shall be dis-
missed from the examination, and their papers for the entire work rejected.
7. Applicants will be required to pass a grade of 70 per cent in both
theoretical and practical parts of the examination. If applicants fall below
the 70 per cent mark in any subject they will be given credit for all subjects
passed in and will be required to appear again for examination only in those
subjects in which they have failed.
8. No examination papers will be returned to the applicant.
9. The examining members of the board shall begin their inspection of
the answers submitted by the candidates immediately after the close of the
examination, and shall complete the same with promptness and dispatch.
1. Applicants who have successfully passed the requirements will be
given a certificate of registration signed by each member of the board,
attested by the president and secretary and stamped with the official seal.
2. When certificates are sent by mail, they must be registered. If not
mailed, a receipt for the same shall be given. In both cases the receipt
must be filed with the application. Any person who has received such a
certificate shall be styled and know as a registered nurse, and shall be
entitled to append the letters R. N. to the name of such person.
3. "Each person to whom such certificate shall be issued, or any renewal
thereof, shall, within ninety (90) days thereafter cause the same to be
presented at the office of the county clerk of the county in which such per-
son resided at the time of filing the application and cause said certificate or
any renewal thereof to be registered. The county clerk shall charge twenty-
five (2.5) cents for registering such certificate. Failure, or the refusal on the
part of any person obtaining a certificate for registration as a nurse, or any
renewal thereof, to register the same with the county clerk of the county
in which said person resided at the time of application within ninety (90)
days from issue of the same shall make a levocation of said certificate:
Provided, hoivevcr, that a certificate revoked for failure or refusal of its
holder to register, the same may be restored upon application to the board
and the payment of a fee of two ($2.00) dollars for the issuance of a new
certificate. Each person so registered as a nurse shall be prepared, when
requested in connection with work as a nurse, to exhibit such certificate of
registration or a certified copy thereof."
4. "The board, upon written application and upon the payment of ten
($10.00) dollars as a registration fee, may issue a certificate without exami-
nation of the applicant who shall have been registered as a registered nurse
under the laws of another state having requirements which in the opinion
of a majority of the members of said board, subject to the approval of the
Attorney General, are of equal or higher standard than those of the State of
Illinois for the registration of nurses."
These rules are subject to revision or amendment by the board.
At the same meeting the board adopted the following
subjects of examination: Ethics; Materia Medica; Dietetics; Urin-
alysis; Anatomy and Physiolog}^ Bacteriology; Hygiene; Medical
Nursing; Surgical Nursing; Gynaecological Nursing; Obstetrical Nurs-
ing; Children and Contagious Nursing. At a meeting held June 12,
1914, the subject of Bacteriology^ was combined with that of Hygiene,
and a new subject Nursing in Nervous and Mental Diseases was —
adopted. This arrangement was used for the first time in the July 14-
15 examination. The Illinois board is the first in 39 states having
registration, to adopt this subject. Prevention is the keynote and the
great need for more thorough instruction of nurses in this subject is
manifested by the presence of 15.000 patients, in the Illinois State
hospitals for the insane, for whom the State bears great expense and
The board has confined its examination to written work only,
because of the very large classes. It has, however, gone on record as
emphasizing the practical phase of nursing education on an equal basis
with the theoretical, and as conducting examinations in strictly nursing
subjects and nursing care, avoiding diagnosis and treatment of disease.
It thus accentuates the line of demarcation between the profession of
nursing and that of medicine.
Of the five examinations held during the year, three
were in Chicago and two in Spring-field. The attendance was as follow.^:
November 31-22, 1913, Chicago 389
December 10-11, 1913, Springfield 56
March 25-26, 1911, Chicago 275
July 1-2, 1911, Chicago 69
July 14-15, 1911, Springfield 38
Because of the large attendance the l)oard has concluded to hold
examinations quarterly in Chicago in October, January and iVpril of
each 5^ear and in Springfield each July.
Six months' eligihiUtif waiver. iVpplications of 210 graduate
nurses Avere accepted under the terms of the six months' waiver
described in section 8 of the new act, granting eligibility by examination
to- nurses having '^graduated and received a diploma from a school for
nurses connected with any hospital of good standing, requiring a system-
atic course of at least tivo' (2) years' training." This waiver elapsed
December 31, 1913. During October, 1913, the terms of this waiver ancl
the examinations appertaining were advertised in 40 newspapers,
throughout the State, in other periodicals and nursing journals. Notices
were also sent to every hospital and school for nurses in the State and
information furnished on approximately 500 individual requests. In
the preparation of questions, the board exercised particular leniency.
Student nurses eligibility. Of the 827 candidates approximately
25 per cent were student nurses eligible under the provisions. of the law
in section 7, which grants eligibility to student nurses, within three
months of completion of course in a 3-year accredited school for nurses.
Of the 827 candidates, 706 were successful in all sub-
jects, and 121 failed in one or more subjects. There were 100 who
re-wrote the subject or subjects of failure, provision being made in the
rules that candidates may re-write as often as necessary, without the
payment of an additional fee.
Grades. — The passing grade of 70 per cent is required in each
subject. Grades of all candidates from any accredited school within the
State are sent, with a copy of the questions used, to the superintendent
or directress of nurses of that school, thus affording an opportunity of
determining possible weak points in the curriculum and acquainting
pupil nurses with the character of the questions used.
Publicity of all examinations has been made a strong
point, owing to the peculiar isolation to which most nurses are subjected.
Notices printed in large type are posted in conspicuous places in schools
for nurses, hospitals and headquarters of nurses' organizations. Notices
are sent to all schools for nurses in Illinois, regardless of standing, and
announcement is published in newspapers, in National and State nurs-
ino- journals. The large responses are particularly gratifying, since the
law is not mandatory.
The first certificates issued under the new statute were dated
February 4, 1914. The total number issued during the year was 713.
This number, added to those registering under the previous statute.
makes a total of 4,164 names on the official register at the close of the
year — .September 30, 1914.
The board has ado2Dted the method of indicating the basis of regis-
tration in letters on the gold seal of each certificate. Thus there were
700 certificates issued "Bv Examination,'' (3 "Bv Kestoration" and 1
B evocation and restoration. Section 4 of the law provides for the
revocation of certificates for failure of the owner "^"'to register the same
with the county clerk of the county in which said person resided at the
time of making application, within ninety (90) days from issue." The
same section provides for the restoration "upon application and payment
of $2." There were six certificates revoked- and restored under this
Section 11 ])i'ovi(les for revocation "for gross incompetency or
recklessness in the discharge of duty as a registered nurse." Provision
is also made for renewals. We
have received no complaints against any
registered nurse, nor against any person using the title "R. X." imder
TTnder the terms of section 7, unlimited reciprocity was established
with the State Board of Xurse Examiners of Indiana, March 13, 1914.
Six Illinois registered nurses and one Indiana registered nurse have
taken advantage of this. Unlimited reciprocity was established with
Wisconsin September 1, 1914, at which time a xcvj liberal waiver in
the AVisconsin law expired, and the standards of requirements became
equivalent in these two states. Reciprocity has been extended to the
State Board of Maryland, but was rejected owing to the fact that Mary-
land's law does not include a reciprocity clause. The board is awaiting
an official response, which promises to be favorable, from the states of
California and Minnesota, to which unlimited reciprocity has been
extended. The Attorney General of Illinois, Hon. Patrick J. Lucey. has
approved the action of this l)oard in respect to extending reciproc-ity to
the above named states.
REMOVAL OF OFFICE TO SPRINGFIELD.
On December 18, 1913, the State Board of Xurse Examiners
removed its lieadquarters from Room 1(540 Unity Building, Chicago, to
the State Capitol, Springfield. The advantages of this step are realized
in many ways, as, avoiding the payment of rent, gaining more public
recognition, being in more ready access to smaller down-State institu-
tions which need and desire the support and advice of this department,
and the decided advantage of being in closer touch with the other
departments of the State Government.
SCHOOLS FOR XURSES.
Section 3 of the law provides that: "The board shall from time to
time * * * adopt rules providing for and establishing uniform and
reasonable standards of maintainance, instruction and training, to be
observed by all schools for nurses which are on or pending to be
placed on the list of accredited schools for nurses, hereinafter provided
for, and also for inspection' by said board for such schools for nurses.
By reference to the compliance or non-compliance of schools for nurses
with such rules, and the general standard of efficiency or inefficiency of
management and instruction maintained by same, the said board shall,
by conducting inspections in accordance with its rules, determine the
eligibility of and designate the schools for nurses to be placed on or to
be withdrawn from a list which shall be known as the list of accredited
schools for nurses."
On February 4, 1914, the board adopted the following rules govern-
ing the accrediting of schools
RULES GOVERNING ACCREDITING OF SCHOOLS FOR NURSES IN
1. The training school must be connected with a general or special
hospital, having not less than 25 beds, and the number of student nurses
shall not exceed one-half to one-fourth the number of patients, governed by
the facilities for private or ward patients.
2. The principal of the training school shall be a registered nurse or
eligible to registration.
3. The training school shall require of all applicants proof of one year
of high school or its equivalent; that they shall not be less than 19 years of
age; of good moral character; of good physical and mental health and free
from any habit rendering them unsafe to be entrusted with or unfit for the
care of the sick. Preference should be given to applicants who have spent
more than one year in a high school or college and to those who have taken
a partial or full course in domestic science in a recognized technical school.
4. The training school shall require a systematic course of at least
three years' training.
5. The instruction shall be both theoretical and practical.
The theoretical work shall be based upon the suggested course of in-
struction for the training schools for nurses, as the minimum requirement.
(Schools are accredited for a period of one year, subject to annual in-
spection and renewal.)
Inspection and accrediting of schools for nurses.- There are 105
schools for nurses in the State of Illinois, having an approximate total
of 600 graduates a year. When the present board came into possession
of the records of the former board, 64 schools were on the accredited list,
with two others pending renewal. On February 4. 1914, the board, very
heavily engrossed in the work of examinations, voted to extend the period
of accrediting of all schools then on the accredited list until such a time
as the work of inspection could be efficiently accomplished. Twenty
new applications have been received during the year, only three of which
are located in Chicago, while 17 are located throughout the State from
Freeport to Cairo. One of the latter has since withdrawn, having
dissolved its newly organized training school, in favor of employing
graduates only. Four schools formerly accredited for the two years'
course given, have lengthened the course to three years and have applied
for full credit.
When the work of inspection took definite form, efforts and thought
were concentrated upon down-State schools and smaller schools in
Chicago, for it soon became an assured fact that the board could render
much and appreciated service to those, which seemed to be struggling
against odds in establishing and maintainino- standards and to the
schools just becoming organized. The entire State outside of Chicago,
except the extreme northeast portion, and about one-third of Chicago,
were covered by inspection prior to September 30, 1914. The new appli-
cants, excepting the most recent, have been inspected. The secretary,
who has also acted as inspector of training schools, has so planned this
|)hase of the work that all schools previously accredited and all new
applicants pending accrediting, will have been inspected by December
Following is a statement of the inspection and accrediting of
schools for nurses from September 30, 1913, to September 30, 1914:

In acting upon data collected by inspection, the board has not
any school not meeting the minimum standard, but has
rejected, at once,
deferred action and offered definite recommendations and suggestions,
that the school may be fully advised of deficiencies and aided in the
development of its course. Equal emphasis is placed upon theoretical
instniction and practical experience.
Theoretical Instruction. —
The following suggested outline of a
course of theoretical instruction is considered a minimum and furnishes
a basis for a more elaborate course. It is so arranged as to provide a
proper division of classes, thus eliminating much of the unnecessary
duplication, so common in former days. This course may be easily
covered by a program comprising 10 months of each year, without crowd-
ing either pupils or instructors. Properly divided, it includes, in the
first year, three hours of class work each week during both the prelim-
inary period of three months and the advanced course of seven months,
with one lecture in addition, each week for the latter. In the second
year there are two hours of class and one lecture each week. In the
third year there is one hour of class every second week and one lecture
every second Aveek. For the entire school, it aggregates five classes and
three lectures each week, with- an additional class and lecture every
second week. Experience has proved that, as a rule, student nurses
derive most benefit from practical demonstrations and study of text with
quizzing. Therefore, the lecture work, usually given by physicians, quite
frequently specialists, is given supplementary to class work. The class
work is usually handled entirely by the graduate nurse directress or

In affiliaiion of schools for nurses with univcrsilies and other schools
of higher education, Illinois has some splendid examples. There are
four schools in Chicago and vicinity that are affiliated with the North-
western Universit}^ and in three of these the course of study is supervised
by the dean of the Medical School, cooperating with the superintendent
of nurses. ISTurses graduating receive diplomas from the university
with the degree of graduate nurse and they graduate with the other
university students. Down-State, one school is affiliated with Wesleyan
University at Bloomington, one with Lombard College at Galesburg,
and another Avith the University of Illinois at Urbana. These three
affiliations are not so extensive, that is, nurses do not receive a diploma
of the college or university, and the affiliation is for the subject of
dietetics only. Three other down-State schools are contemplating affilia-
tion -with the State normals, located at Charleston, Macomb and Car-
bondale. A large number of the Chicago schools affiliate with the
Lewis Institute for Dietetics.
Uniformity of text books is a commendable feature of the schools
for nurses in Illinois.
Practical expenence. — Although the board has not yet submitted a
guide for the proper division of practical work, it hopes to publish this
very soon. Every school should give to its nurses before sending them
out without supervision, a definite term of experience in surgical,
medical, operating room, diet kitchen, obstetrical, children, supervising,
special duty nursing, etc., and this should be given in proper propor-
tions. The laboratory for this phase of nurses' training is the hospital.
Schools lacking certain phases are urged to affiliate with some accredited
school for nurses, that can provide this, and the board assists in bring-
ing this affiliation about. Children's 'nursing, and occasionally obste-
trical, are the subjects most frequently found inadequate. There are
at least five schools in Chicago prepared and willing to furnish a two
to four months' affiliated course. Also, for schools in the extreme
southern part of the State, some of the best St. Louis schools are acces-
sible. The board has also found it necessary to urge many schools to
give greater prominence, in the course of training, to actual routine
preparation of food and supervision of diets.
Training Scliool Records. The necessity of keeping Ijotli daily and
permanent training school records is emphasized, and instruction in
simple methods of keeping these is given by the inspector where needed.
These should include a record of the preliminary qualifications of each
student, the number of hours of class and lecture work, subjects, grades,
names of instructors, length of time spent in each department of prac-
tical experience, adaptability, date of completion of course, etc.
Nurses' Homes. — There is a noticeable and commendable effort
being made, which is almost general in character, by way of provision
of up-to-date and comfortable class room equipment, wholesome recre-
ation and pleasant homes for the nurses. There have been many modern
homes built especially for the student nurses during the last year. School
authorities realize that these items are largely conducive to good service.
Supply of Nurses v. Demand. Although there has been a great
increase in hospital capacity, reports from superintendents of schools for
nurses show that there is now in nearly every quarter, the proper number
of desirable and well qualified applicants to supply the demand for larger
schools for nurses. It has been particularly noticeable during the past
year that very many schools have waiting lists and that the qualifications
of candidates are much higher than formerly.
RECORDS, DATA, ETC.
The board has been greatly aided in its service to the State by the
excellent condition of records and extensive collection of data on file
the work of the former board. Many additional forms, blanks and
circular letters have been printed to lessen the pressing need for
additional clerical and stenographic assistance. A large register, indexed
alphabetically, presumably adequate for the names of nurses registering
in a period of 20 years, has been opened. The names and data of all
nurses registered during the five years under the former statute are
being transcribed. Another ledger, loose-leaf in form, has been estab-
lished, giving the classification of all registered nurses, according to the
school of graduation.
The secretary is at present at work ol)taining from every county
in the State up-to-date data on hospitals and training schools, and in
constructing a large map. The map will show the exact location of
every hospital without training school, every hospital with a training
school, every accredited school, every non-accredited school, and every
school pending accrediting.

treasury was $7,746.01. The department appropriation for expenses
was $5,130 for the year. The sum, therefore, paid into the State
treasury was $2,616.01 in excess of the appropriation. This department
has always more than paid its own way.

showing that vonchers to the amount of $756.88, which were presented to
the department and institution auditor on September 23 and September
29, 1913, were paid out of the 1913 appropriation. The amount of the
1912 appropriation which reverted into the State treasury September 30,
1913, was greater than the amount necessary to cover this expense.
On account of the fact that the business of the board has increased
sixfold over the previous year, as shown Ijy receipts, and therefore the
necessity for more clerical and stenographic assistance, as well as office
equipment, postage, etc., an appropriation estimate of $6,550 for 1915
and $6,450 for 1916, has been submitted to the Legislative Eeference
Bureau. We are asking for an increase of $1,420 for 1915 and $1,320
for 1916 on the basis of efficiencv alone.

to every accredited school for nurses in Illinois, at least thirty (30) days
prior to the meeting. At such meetings it shall be the duty of the board to
examine all applicants for registration who present themselves in accordance
with the terms of this act, and shall issue a certificate for registration to
each applicant who passes the prescribed examination to the satisfaction of
the board. Bach person to whom such certificate shall be issued, or any
renewal thereof as hereinafter provided, shall, within ninety (90) days there-
after cause the same to be presented at the office of the county clerk of the
county in which such person resided at the time of filing the application and
cause said certificate or any renewal thereof to be registered. The county
clerk shall charge twenty-five (25) cents for registering such certificate.
Failure, or refusal on the part of any person obtaining a certificate for regis-
tration as a nurse, or any renewal thereof, to register the same with the
county clerk of the county in which said person resided at the time of appli-
cation, within ninety (90) days from issue of the same, shall work revocation
of said certificate: Provided, lioicever, that a certificate revoked for failure
or refusal of its holder to register the same may be restored upon application
to the board and the payment of a fee of two dollars for the issuance of a
new certificate. Each person so registered as a nurse shall be prepared,
when requested in connection with work as a nurse, to exhibit such certificate
of registration or a certificate copy thereof.
Sec. 5. Certificates.] All certificates issued to nurses by the board shall
contain the name and address of the person to whom it is granted, the date
of its issuance, shall bear the seal of the board, shall be signed by all of the
members, shall be attested by the president and scretary of the board, and
shall confer authority upon the person to whom it is issued to practice as a
registered nurse in accordance with the provisions of this act.
Sec. 6. County ct-erk to keep registration book.] Every county clerk
shall keep in a book provided for the purpose, a complete list of all the cer-
tificates registered by him under the provisions of this act, together with the
date of the issuance and registration of such certificates, and within sixty
days after this act becomes effecetive, shall prepare in duplicate, accompanied
by his official certificate that it is complete, a list of names and addresses as
the same appear of record in his office, with the date of registration, of all
nurses registered in his county under any previous act, prior to July 1, 1913,
and annually thereafter, before the first day of March, shall prepare in dupli-
cate in like manner, a list of names registered under this act during the
preceding calendar year, and forwa,rd said lists in duplicate to the Secretary
of State, who shall keep one copy thereof on file in his office and, after certi-
fying the other to be a true copy of a part of the records of his office, shall
forward the same to the secretary of the Illinois State Board of Nurse
Examiners, to be kept on file in the office of said board.
Sec. 7. Qualifications of applicants for registration written appli-
— — —
cation fee examinations registration of certificates of other states.]
No person, unless previously registered or licensed to act as a registered
nurse in this State at the time this act shall become operative, shall Be
allowed to act as a registered nurse without first applying for and obtaining
a certificate for such purpose from the Illinois State Board of Nurse
Examiners. Application shall be made to said board in writing and shall in
every instance be accompanied by the examination fee of $10.00, together
with satisfactory proof that the applicant is residing in the State of Illinois,
is of good moral character, is at least twenty-two (22) years of age at the
time of making the application, is a graduate of and has a diploma from an
accredited school for nurses connected with a general hospital requiring a
systematic course of at least three (3) years' training, and possesses such
other qualifications as may be prescribed from time to time by the rules of
said board: Provided, hoioever, an application may be made by one who
under the rules of an accredited school for nurses will be entitled to receive
a diploma within three months following the date of filing said application,
but no certificate shall be issued to such applicant until he or she has
received such diploma, and has satisfactorily passed the prescribed examina-
tions. When such application and the accompanying proof are found satis-
factory, the board shall notify the applicant to appear before it for examina-
tion at a time and place to be fixed by the board. Examination may be made
orally and in writing, and shall be of a character to test the qualifications of
the applicant to serve as a registered nurse. All examinations provided
for in this act shall be conducted by the board, which shall provide for a fair
and wholly impartial method. After any applicant shall have paid a fee of
$10.00 on the filing of an application for examination, any subsequent appli-
cation of the same person shall be taken without the payment of a fee: Pro-
vided, however, the board upon written application and upon the payment of
$10.00 as a registration fee, may issue a certificate without examination of
the applicant who shall have been registered as a registered nurse under the
law of another state having requirements which in the opinion of a majority
of the members of said board, subject to the approval of the Attorney Gen-
eral, are of equal or higher standard than those of the State of Illinois for
registration of nurses.
Sec. 8.Whex special course sufficient for registratiox.1 Applicants
shall also be eligible for examination for registration who at the time of
application shall have graduated and received a diploma from a school for
nurses connected with any hospital of good standing requiring a syste-
matic course of at least two (2) years' training and who being of the age
herein prescribed or over and of good moral character, shall have either
filed application for examination within six (6) months next following the
date upon which this act becomes in force and effect, or, at the time of
application, shall have obtained in any hospital of good standing one (1)
year's additional training in subjects not adequately taught in the school
for nurses from which they graduated, and shall satisfactorily pass an
examination to determine their fitness and ability to give efficient care to
Sec. 9. Unlawful to practice as registered nurse without certifi-
cate.] It shall be unlawful hereafter for any person to practice or attempt
to practice in this State as a registered nurse without a certificate from the
board. Any person who has received such a certificate shall be styled and
known as a registered nurse, and shall be entitled to append the letters
"R. N." to his or her name. No person shall assume or use, or knowingly
allow or permit any other person to use, such abbreviation "R. N." or any
other words, letters or figures after his own name or after the name of any
other person for the purpose of indicating that such person is a registered
nurse, unless the person after whose name the said letters, abbreviations or
words are so used, is in fact a registered nurse and entitled under the pro-
visions of this law to act as such.
Sec. 10. Penalty.] Any person who shall practice, or in any way repre-
sent himself or herself, or any other person, as a registered nurse in this
State without such person holding a certificate duly registered and recorded
as provided by this act, or who shall violate any of the provisions of this
act, shall be subject to prosecution in any court of competent jurisdiction
upon complaint, information or indictment, and shall, upon conviction, be
fined for each offense in any sum not more than $100.00 for the first offense
nor more than $200.00 for each subsequent offense.
Any person who shall wilfully make any false representations to the
board in applying for a certificate, shall be guilty of a misdemeanor, and
upon conviction shall be fined in a sum not more than $200.00.
Sec. 11. Revocatiox of certificate renewal.] Registered nurses' cer-
tificates issued in accordance with the provisions of this Act shall remain
in full force until revoked for cause, as hereinafter provided. Any certifi-
cate so granted may be revoked by unanimous vote of the Illinois State
Board of Nurse Examiners for gross incompetency or recklessness in the
discharge of duty as a registered nurse, or for dishonest practices on the
part of the holder thereof; but before any certificate shall be revoked such
holder shall be entitled to at least thirty (30) days notice in writing of
the charge against him or her, together with notice of the time and place
of the meeting of the board for the hearing and determining of such charge,
and shall be entitled to a full, fair and impartial hearing of such charges
under rules to be adopted from time to time by the said board. On the
cancellation of such certificate it shall be the duty of the secretary of the
board to give notice of such cancellation to the county clerk of the county
in which the certificate has been registered, whereupon said county clerk
shall note such cancellation on the registration book in his office. Upon
satisfactory evidence of reasons for the reinstatement of a registered nurse
whose certificate has been thus revoked, the board may, six months after
the date of such revocation, or any time thereafter, issue a new certificate
to the said nurse without examination, upon payment to the board of a
fee of $5.00.
Sec. 12. Appeal to circuit court from certain rulings of board.] Any
person whose certificate as a registered nurse shall be revoked, or to whom
a renewal of such certificate previously issued shall be denied, or any train-
ing school for nurses whose application to be placed upon the list of
accredited training schools for nurses shall be denied, or whose name is
stricken from such list, by ruling of the board, without the consent of such
training school, may, within thirty (30) days after such action of the board,
file in the Circuit Court of the county in which such nurse resides, or in
which such training school for nurses is located, a petition against the
Illinois State Board of Nurse Examiners, officially, as defendant, alleging
therein, under oath, and in brief detail the petitioner's qualifications for and
rights to the privileges denied such petitioner by the ruling of the board,
and praying for a reversal of such ruling, upon entry of appearance by, or
service of summons upon said board as hereinafter provided for, the board
shall file a nanswer as in actions in chancery, but not under oath, in which
shall allege by way of defense, the grounds previously held by it as respon-
sible for its adverse ruling against such nurse or training school. All allega-
tions of the answer shall be deemed to stand denied without further plead-
ing, and upon application of either party thereto the cause shall be advanced
and heard without delay.
Either party to such proceeding shall have the right to a trial by jury,
provided a demand therefor be made in writing in the first instance upon
the filing of the petition or answer, but either party may there afterwards
waive such demand for a jury trial. The burden shall rest upon the peti-
tioner to disprove the grounds assigned and specified for the official action
of the board complained of. The court's decision sliall be final, but if adverse
to the petitioner, it shall not bar a new application to the board for a re-
newal of a revoked certificate for registration under the provisions of this
act, nor after the lapse of six (6) months from its rendition in the case of
training schools, shall it bar a new application of the petitioner to be placed
on the list of accredited schools nor shall a decision of the court in favor
of the petitioner prevent the board from thereafter taking similar adverse
action against the petitioner for sufficient cause which may thereafter accrue
or be discovered.
For the purpose of affording the right of such appeals, in any actions
instituted hereunder, service of process may be had on said board by serving
a summons upon a president, secretary or any member of said board, in the
county in wliich the office of the board is located or in any county of the
State where any one of said persons may be found, for which purpose of
service process may issue directed to any county in the State as in the
case of summons issued against parties defendant residing in foreign
Sec. 13. Exemption- from jrRV service. J All registered nurses in this
State shall be exempt from service as jurors in any of the courts in this
Sec. 14.To whom does not apply.] This act shall not affect or apply to
the gratuitous nursing of the sick by friends or members of the family, nor
to any person nursing the sick for hire, who does not in any way assume or
pretend to be a registered nurse, and this act, shall not interfere in any
manner with members of religious communities who have charge of hospi-
tals, orwho are engaged in nursing in hospitals, or take care of the sick in
their ov.n homes, provided such members do not in any way assume to be
Sec. 15. Repeal of act of May 2, 1907 board to succeed to obliga-
tions, FUNDS AND BUSINESS OF STATE BOARD OF EXAMINERS OF REGISTERED
NURSES.] "An act relating to nurses and providing for their registration,"
approved May 2, 1907, in force July 1, 1907, is hereby repealed: Provided,
however, that all applications filed with the State Board of Examiners of
Registered Nurses under the provisions of said act shall be recognized by
the Illinois State Board of Nurse Examiners created hereunder, and shall
be treated as though filed under the provisions of this act; also that said
new board created hereunder shall, upon organizing, succeed to and be
chargeable with any outstanding financial obligations or indebtedness of
said Board of Examiners of Registered Nurses created under said act hereby
repealed, and, in like manner, shall succeed to, collect, take over, receive
and account for, all moneys, credits or appropriations due or hereafter to
come due, or which may be in the hands of said old board at the time of
the organization of the new board hereby created, and shall receive, account
for and handle any moneys so collected or taken over, as well as all other
funds hereafter coming into its hands, in the manner now or hereafter pro-
vided for by law; and shall also take over the records and equipment of the
State Board of Examiners of Registered Nurses and its unfinished business.
