1.0 out of 5 stars A Rip Off 18 Feb 2012
By P. Kerr
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is not a book, it is a badly written essay which I read in half an hour. The author was a student nurse for just over a year then left to look after her mother who was ill. Very commendable I know but given the title I expected it to be like similar stories on the subject. It was really just a synopsis for a book. I will be asking for my money back.

Much more could have been made of this story as I would have liked to have heard about all the training and happenings throughout the authors years as a student nurse. It ended before it began.

Too short and little to do with training to be be a nurse. This book read more like a bagly written school essay
