Publisher's Summary

Hurry Up Nurse is a nurse memoir that follows the ups and downs of a trainee nurse in the 1970s. Written with humor and candor, it follows the experiences of the author as she and her friends come to terms with the non-stop hustle and bustle of hospital life. This book treats the reader to a peep behind the scenes as we enter the hospital wards. The author shares the discipline, laughter and inevitable sadness as she learns to cope with the strains of shift work. It also highlights the domineering presence of the Ward Sister during the era.

Dull naration

While I'm sure the story was interesting, the narration was so lifeless I couldn't finish.

Be the Nurse !

I have always wanted to be a Nurse, so when this title appeared in audio I was keen to listen. Dawn's story of her experiences and Nurse training in the 1970's and Emma's narration put you right there, in the middle of it all. I listen whilst driving, and almost missed my turn I was so engrossed ! Humorous, sad, compelling, very entertaining, I loved Dawn's style of writing and Emma brings it all to life. I can't wait for the next installment !
