Gritty and honest . . it has a fierce compassion. -Martha Lear Author of Heartsounds -- Martha Lear Author of Heartsounds

With uncompromising honesty, Carol Gino strips the TV image to reveal the gritty truths of a nurse's life, from it's early, optimistic beginnings to the harsh realities (and incalculable rewards) that sustain her even in the face of a nurse's greatest professional hazard -- burnout. How can she help the family of a terminally ill patient when the doctor can do nothing more? What can she do for a 10-year-old burn victim for whom most of consciousness is pain? How does she convince the doctor of her intuition that the patient cannot survive major surgery at a given time? And how can she leave all this behind at the end of her shift? The Nurse's Story is one woman's eloquent testament of passionate commitment, a moving and important affirmation of courage, of the power of love, and of tragedy redeemed by compassion. The Nurse's Story belongs on the library shelf of every nursing school, every hospital, and every public library in the country. --Midwest Book Review --This text refers to the edition.
