Oh, Nurse!: One Man’s Journey Through the Nursing Life, a Personal Account of the Highs and LowsOh, Nurse!: One Man’s Journey Through the Nursing Life, a Personal Account of the Highs and Lows by David Daniels
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

When the author asked me to review this book I stated that I mostly read books by females with strong female leads. But I took a moment and realized that this was a male nurse. He knew where I was coming from, and he’d proven himself. So I figured his book deserved my read.

It was good. If my feet and back could have handled it, I would have tried to be a doctor or a nurse. I was a candy striper with that aim. But not only couldn’t I handle it physically, when one of my patients died I found that to be too hard to take. Granted I was sixteen, not enough life experience to know people come and go from your life. But that little bit of experience made what I read in Oh, Nurse! ring even truer.

As I usually say when reviewing a biography or autobiography, this is someone’s life. It is hard to play judge and jury when watching them walk in their own shoes. I wish I would be able to say this book encourages future nurses. But, with medical marriage with insurance, I don’t think it is going to get better any time soon. The greatest profession should still be nursing. They are the patient advocate, or at least they should be. They are invaluable to doctors, at least they should be.

I have always loved shows like Greys Anatomy, ER, all those medical shows. They are there to give us all an eye into what is happening or can happen when personalities and money are involved in trying to take care of medical issues people present with.

I hope that in spite of his honest story of his life as a nurse, others will choose to go into that career. I hope his story opens the eyes of those in charge of our medical needs to how to make things right for all.

Good job, David Daniels!

Hospital

That is where many of the hats and goodies that I make go to. Here’s the one I finished today.

It is called the Ombre Beanie by Loom A Hat. I made it with the opening in the top for the Messy Bun or ponytail. I love making things for others. I imagine those who still have hair on chemo or a patient who is having a bad hair day could pull their hair up into the top and yet keep their ears warm.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

My mother wanted me to be a nurse. I think she also wanted me to be a famous pianist. All I can claim is bad back and short fingers. From the time I was a teen, I could see I couldn’t be on my feet for very long. How I managed to cosmetologist for a year and a half, I don’t know. But mom had some things right. I love knowing how to read music because I love singing. And I do like the life in the hospital. I was a candy striper for a little while, and I saw that I like taking care of the patients. I like the drama of the hospital, and I love the miracle of science that is ever present in the hospital. Hence my addiction with things like Gray’s Anatomy and other medical shows. I even like the gruesome ER live dramas. If so when I saw this book on the freebies I thought I’d probably enjoy it. And I was right.

Warning: maybe not the best read for someone who’s dealt with cancer. I’d hate to think that the things that happened in this book could easily happen. But I suppose it’s possible.

This was an action-packed technothriller. Not so much a mystery. You know from the first page who is the problem. You just hope that the main character can figure it out and live through it. And yes, the main character is a nurse. I did like the character development in this book. And just a bit of a warning: this book may make you forget that there are other things to do in your house besides read.

Though I was able to pick this book up for free it is now $2.99 as are the other books in the series. As soon as I can afford it. I think I may try to read the rest of the series. I think it’s worth it.
