Publisher's Summary

From an early age, I knew someday I would be a nurse...I looked for every opportunity I could find to practice my nursing skills. I even dreamed about it. After two years of candy striping, I had learned some valuable lessons about myself. Number one: I didn't like to be around sick people. Number two: vomit made me vomit.
At the age of 30, Janet Izzo decided to make her childhood dream a reality. Sure, she'd had some setbacks, but with the image of Florence Nightingale ever-present, she plowed forward, ignoring her family's laughter, braving college courses with students nearly half her age, and balancing the roles of wife, mother, and student. Then it happened: she was finally a nurse. But the journey wasn't over there; in fact, it was just beginning.
In Hotel Hennepin: Nurses Can Make the Difference author Janet Izzo, RN shares the joys and struggles of being a nurse. Her dream of caring for mothers and their babies brought her to County Hospital, jokingly known as Hotel Hennepin, where she had the privilege of caring for hundreds of women. Janet tells their stories as only a nurse can, taking readers behind the scenes of this busy obstetric unit where new life begins and sometimes ends on the same day. You will laugh and you will cry as you read the dramatic real-life stories behind the doors of Hotel Hennepin, showing that nursing is more than just a job—it's a passion.
