Nurse by Peggy Anderson

  1. I'm sure this has already been posted somewhere, but I was just wondering if anyone else loves this book as much as I do? I just finished reading it and I read it non-stop all the way from beginning to end I was so enthralled and interested. Many parts were so sad and it definitely helped open my eyes a little more about everything in nursing. I'm still just a pre-nursing student - getting into the N.S. next fall (finally!), but I thought it was a really good account of the sort of things I read about here on allnurses. I loved the main character and the writing style and the fact that its a true story and I think every pre-nursing student should read it. I'm really glad I acted on a whim and bought it. Are there any other books like it out there?

    Nurse by Peggy Anderson? I've had that book for years, started it and put it down, because at the time I was too busy on other things to have the chance to get into the heart of the book. What I read was good, the reason I've kept holding onto the book. Thanks for sharing that with us. I will make that my next great read.
