an excellent book about nursing

  1. the general public do not have a good understanding of what we as nurses do on a daily basis.i just finished reading a very good book related to nursing by suzi franco rn. she wrote a short book of vignettes in prose and poetry to describe her experience over the last 20 yrs as a nurse .she went to nursing school at age 36 as a single mom of 6 kids.she has worked as a ed and icu nurse .the book has very real actual events .sometimes written graphically .but i think it shows a loving caring competent professional nurse.she talks not only of the pts situation but her as the nurse as well she is very open about her feelings.one of the most poignant is a story about 1 of her daughters who was in atlanta and almost dies in an mva.daughter has serious injury and requires long hospitalization and rehab for recovery.it was 86 pages and a quick read .she got me to cry a few times .just thaught someone else might like to read it .you can get it at ebay and amazon i think .:wink2:
