In the tradition of Studs Terkel's Working, "Just a Nurse" brings us the voices of America's nurses - in burn units, cancer & AIDS wards, prisons, children's hospices and delivery rooms. They speak candidly about the joys & sorrows, tragedies & miracles of their work as they shatter every myth about nurses & nursing you've ever heard.

But above all, shining through, is the love nurses bring to their work - and to their patients - in a book that is a must read for nurses, for medical professionals, for anyone who has ever been or will be a patient, and for everyone concerned about health care in Ameria today. A dramatic portrait of the nursing profession. Cases, anecdotes & medical incidents related w/candor & authenticity.

"Heartrending & vivid, a moving account of american nursing today."
Pascal James Imperato, M.D. Editor, N.Y. State Journal of Medicine
