In 1970 Texas Woman's University, College of Nursing instituted summer sequential programs in nursing whereby a student could study for a master's degree by attending the University for three summers. A different clinical focus was added each year from 1970 to 1973. Three sequences have been completed, i.e., clinical focuses of psychiatric-mental health nursing, medical-surgical nursing, and maternal-child nursing. Community health nursing is still in progress. Table II is a tabulation of the number and percentage of students who have entered, have withdrawn, are incomplete, or have graduated. Faculty and students think that the program is successful. Enrollment for the first summer of a three-summer sequence beginning the summer of 1974 was twenty-five students in medical-surgical nursing and fifteen students in psychiatric-mental health nursing.
