This looks like an interesting book — from an English teacher turned Nurse:
In the new book, 'Critical Care: A New Nurse Faces Death, Life and Everything in Between' (2010, HarperCollins Publishers), Theresa Brown examines life as a first-year nurse in medical oncology after leaving her life in academia to become a registered nurse (RN) in a field that she describes as "just feeling right."
Great reading at Hugo House Tuesday night. Standing room only! For Elizabeth Austen's new book The Girl Who Goes Alone, from Floating Bridge Press. The title poem is a long (3 page or so) narrative piece about what it means for a woman to hike alone. It's pretty moving stuff. Check it out here.
