The Home was instituted in tlie year 1901 with
the object of bringing within the reach of the rural
population of Scotland the Holt-Oekley system of
nursing, which has proved veiy successful in England.
The objects of the home as mow developed are the
following; — (1) To provide nursing in their own
homes in maternity and other cases for the working
classes and the poor of Govan and surrounding
district, without distinction of creed. (2) To train
women in district nur-sing to fit them for work as
village nu'ses in rural districts, (3) To train women
as rural certificated midwives for the Highlands, or
other country districts, where these may be required.
During 1903 the cases and visits were as follows: —
Maternity cases attended, 304; general cases nursed,
187; visits paid by the nurses, 12,788. The
Elder Cottage Hospital, which owes its origin to Mi's.
John Elder's generosity, is worked in connection with
the Training Home, Small fees are charged for the
nurses' services to the working classes of Govan and
district (the necessitous being nursed free of charge),
and fees are also pa'd by District Associations for
the training of nurses ; but the Home requires an
