....nursing is a vocation, not a job, so unless your ambition is to be a nurse, with the above qualifications there are better paid jobs, with much better hours, than in nursing.http://www.google.co.uk/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=nursing%20from%202013&source=web&cd=4&ved=0CEUQFjAD&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.nhscareers.nhs.uk%2Fdetails%2Fdefault.aspx%3Fid%3D1944&ei=kPgaT9DQJeHS4QTT5rGLDQ&usg=AFQjCNHM3CHj2UVJ0_V-UzgfT5qW8NKrBg&cad=rja
the wife has just read this book, she couldn't put it down, brilliant book (her words).Digit":31vag43l said:For those who have not read it, I recommend 'Matron knows best' by Joan Woodcock.
just asked her roy, a tramp had maggots eating at his leg, and another had a rat up his trousers, you couldn't make it up could you..Digit":29dkjlsn said:Steve, did she recite the story about the maggots? If not, ask her to.
many thanks Roy, we would love to buy them from you when you have finished reading them, saves us scouting about for them..Digit":1awo883u said:In the same vein Steve your wife will love 'Bed pans and Bobby socks' by Barbara Fox and Gwenda Gofton. It's about 5 British nurses who decide to work in the States, and to quote an American, see more of the country than most Americans, travelling all over in the wreck of a Ford car.
Also 'Midwife on Call,' by Agnes Light.
If she can't find them and wants to follow up she can have my copies when I've finished.
