Description

St. Brigid’s Orphanage: Instructions to the Nurses (1899, 2nd Edition). It is submitted by the Sisters of the Holy Faith. The Instructions for Nurses is a supplemental guide, created by St. Brigid’s Orphanage and geared toward nurses (foster parents). The first edition was published forty years prior in 1959. The manual focuses on providing six instructions for nurses (foster parents). The six specific instructions are: Instructions, Correction, Good Example, Vigilance, Schooling and Work. Nurses (foster parents) are encouraged or incentivised, via premiums, to accept orphans as their own. In addition, they are encouraged to foster Catholic teachings, create awareness of Protestantism, and provide appropriate ‘correction’ or corporal punishment. Nurses (foster parents) are provided with examples of maladaptive behaviours, expectations from education and the recommended school-age, expected level of educational attainment. They are also instructed on the differing roles male and female children display; particularly with regard to functional responsibilities and their position in the home and/or farm.
