Deb Rislow
A nursing career

This book is well written, delightful, and educational. At the end of each chapter I wanted to read more about that particular time in Mary Lu Gerke's career. I think she could write more books about her nursing career, especially her early years. It's interesting and filled with compassion and empathy. Such a good read for anyone going into nursing or was in the field of nursing.
