The author a graduate of Lincoln Hospital, New York City, and for 18 years served as the assistant superintendent of nurses for that institution.
"The colored nurse of this century has unusually difficult problems to solve because of the race prejudice which she finds about her. ... It is hoped that graduates will find new inspiration in this story of the pathfinders who have made the way easy for them; that students will catch a new vision of the heights to which they may ascend; and that the great understanding public of our own race and of other races may through this glimpse of our strivings lend us financial and spiritual aid toward this ideal of racial and national betterment."
