    I wish I could read a novel in one day! The book I am reading now by Echo Heron is taking me about 1 hour for 30 pages. Am I a slow reader or what?!?!

    I remember reading all of the books mentioned in this thread back in school. I think I may reread them now, after 8 years of experience in nursing. I bet I'll appreciate them even more now!

    Sorry to post on an old thread but I just found it and just finished reading Intensive Care by Echo Heron. I am not a nursing student yet but I thought it was AWESOME. I loved the patients' stories ~ many of them will both make you laugh and cry !! I too encourage anyone who is even thinking about nursing to read her books. It really gave me a realistic but positive outlook on nursing.

    I've got all her books! Would love to meet her someday. She was part of my inspiration to become a nurse. I used to read her books on my lunch hour while working in the Information Technology field!

    I agree with y'all.

    I LOVED Echo Heron's books. Do you also know she writes fictional mysteries? Her true story writings are really fun to read and downright inspiring.

    Right now I'm trying to read Florence Nightengale's 'Notes On Nursing.' It's pretty interesting in that so many of the nursing concepts we are taught Florence wrote about centuries ago!

    If anyone is interested, I recommend 'On Death and Dying' by Elisabeth Kubler-Ross. She was famous for coming up with the five stages of grief and that book is excellent for anyone who wants to improve their ability to deal with dying patients and their families.
