    Hi - Yes I've read her books. The nonfiction ones. I enjoyed Tending Lives. Each chapter is by a nurse in a different area of nursing. (for example, psych, long term care, community health nurse, etc). It helped me to see each area of nursing from the perspective of the nurse.

    If you use the search option, you will find that her books have been discussed here previously.

    They are quite good.

    hi i have read "intensive care" and "tending lives" by Echo Heron. I loved these books. There is a sequel to "intensive care" called "condition critical" that i havent read yet. There is another book that i read that is called "just a nurse" but i forgot the author.

    I've enjoyed her books also though she is a little too sweet for me. No disrespect meant, I just tend to be loud, rowdy and obnoxious. You know who is a fun fiction nursing read: books by Eileen Dreyer, a former ER nurse for 15 years. They are mysteries and usually have a sub plot r/t romance. I could do without the romance bit, (sheesh I am picky). But I love the nurses she brings to life, we all know them, we all have worked with them. And some of us are them!!!! Kinda scary.....

    In the spirit of her nurse/protagonist from "Nothing Personal"

    Up the Rebels!!!!

    Good reading to all,

    I also have read all her fiction/non-fiction books. I liked the non-fiction ones the best. Quick and easy reads.
