A shocking, inspirational bestseller, Nurse is the story of eight weeks in the life of a nurse in a large urban hospital. It is all here: the joy and pain, the death and drama, the mistakes, successes, and secrets. Nurse reads like a novel, but sticks in the memory like real experience-because it is.

Great true to life story about 8 weeks in the life of a nurse. Great read. Good for nursing students, new nurses or anybody with an interest!

Excellent memoir about being a nurse. A bit outdated as new medical equipment and CPR has changed the outcome of some critical care situations. However the true sense of what nursing is about comes shining through. Really enjoyed reading this touching memoir.

I would recommend this book to any nursing student or new graduate. It gives real insight in regard to relationships between nurses and doctors as well as the nurse-patient relationships. It describes cases of actual individuals and their histories. While certain things have changed in the 25 years since the book was published, it still makes for an informative and very entertaining read.

When I first got this book, I thought that I would put this up for trade after I read it. However, I realized that this book is too good and informative to let go. Sorry, I found it at B&N if you are interested.

This was a well written book about one nurse's experience, that so many can relate to! Since it was written years ago, some practices (clinical and social) are out-of-date now, but it is still worth the read.

Excellent book about nursing. Outdated but still a thoughtful book about real life feelings on the profession of nursing
