Trauma Junkie : Memoirs of an Emergency Flight Nurse by Janice Hudson.

It is No Other Medicine by Gail Ghinga Hallas, RN. I downloaded it from Amazonto Kindle on my laptop. She can write and just knows nursing. I hate when non-nurses write about nurses. They don't get it.
In the book there were good and bad nurses, good and bad doctors - just like real life!
Her website says she is coming out with another book soon. I can't wait!
Disclosure: No, I don't know her.
