Book Description

Nurse?That's Me? is the story of Fiona Galbraith’s hugely eccentric journey as a student nurse in the 1960s: from the trembling novice who tiptoes into a weird world full of men in pyjamas, to the confident blue-belt capable of running a busy ward. Professionally written, it's a highly entertaining read, packed with hard-to-believe-but-true events.

So why eccentric, you may ask. The problem is that, along the way, Fiona discovers another the hospital's arch-practical joker. War is declared with the housemen, not to mention the local police...who give as good as they get. Mischief, mimicry and revenge inevitably lead to a climax of big, big trouble.

Nurse? That's Me! chattily takes the reader into several worlds: of Olympian hard work and matchless patient care; of death and tragedy; of bullying and character assassination unimaginable today. But there's also the world of mayhem: bubble cars in bandages, weeks of water fights, manure on doorsteps, tortoises in teashops, surgical silliness, wind-up phone calls, policeman pranksters and more.

But Nurse? That's Me! is about far, far more than the high jinks: Fiona Galbraith also has a lot to say about both the joy of nursing and the true care of patients.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great gripping read 26 May 2015
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This has to be one of the best "Nurse" accounts I have read. I've had some late nights wanting to read more before my eyes finally commanded me to put the book down. The tales being told are compassionate, moving and fun. Some Carry on/Doctor in the House moments and some touching, sad tales too. I just can't recommend this book too highly.
Thank you Fiona

as a nurse who trained in the sixties this brought back many memories, it is true to life as it was in those days training as a student nurse ,hard work but very rewarding and a very different training to nurses of today. I would recommend all nurses who trained in that era to read this book it has lots of humour which was appreciated.
