Publisher Description

A New York Times bestseller. “A funny, intimate, and often jaw-dropping account of life behind the scenes.”—People

Nurses is the compelling story of the year in the life of four nurses, and the drama, unsung heroism, and unique sisterhood of nursing—one of the world’s most important professions (nurses save lives every day), and one of the world’s most dangerous, filled with violence, trauma, and PTSD.

In following four nurses, Alexandra Robbins creates sympathetic characters while diving deep into their world of controlled chaos. It’s a world of hazing—“nurses eat their young.” Sex—not exactly like on TV, but surprising just the same. Drug abuse—disproportionately a problem among the best and the brightest, and a constant temptation. And bullying—by peers, by patients, by hospital bureaucrats, and especially by doctors, an epidemic described as lurking in the “shadowy, dark corners of our profession.”

The result is a page-turning, shocking look at our health-care system.

Accurate

One of the most realistic books on the current crises in nursing from the perils of understaffing to the battles between nurses and doctors regarding patient care, plus the issues of bullying and cliques. Stay well my friends, don't believe everything your doctor has to tell you...

I really enjoyed this book and learned from it as well. I have always admired nurses before but wow, I had no idea what it all entailed. Much respect to you all. Thank you.
