Description

Have you ever wondered what it's like to be a nurse? From a USA Today, Audible, and 5-time Wall Street Journal best selling author, this book is a collection of the most memorable moments from the careers of over sixty nurses. It covers nearly seventy years of practice from World War II to the present day. The extraordinary situations described here are the result of more than 1,000 years of hands-on bedside knowledge. The vignettes contain wisdom and insight gained the hard way, from long experience in the trenches (sometimes in actual trenches) performing tasks that range from the most humble to the most skilled. These true stories run the gamut from birth to death. They deal with everything from war, ER, ICU, to childbirth, pediatrics, adult care, surgery, home and homeless healthcare, the psych ward, oncology, the nursing home, and finally hospice. The sacrifice and service of these nurses-their courage, kindness, and determination-is breathtaking. If you've ever wanted to know what goes on behind the scenes of a hospital-you've come to the right place.
