5.0 out of 5 stars Ended too soon. 26 Feb 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A fantastic read, very insightful and you get a great sense of Joans ups and downs during her training, the only snag is that the book finishes all too quickly, I do hope Joan will be writing another, I will certainly be looking out for it.

A good book about the good & bad times about training to be a nurse. They reckon it's hard today with modern medicine but this reveals the hardships

We were worked hard for very little pay but nursing was a vocation then and we didn't have computers then as now it was all down to hard back breaking work and our patients usually recovered too

3.0 out of 5 stars A refreshing change 9 Jan 2014
By Jill
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Not a bad read, made a change to read about someone who didn't feel the 'good old days' of nursing were all that good and became disenchanted with nursing. Nice to have nostalgia from a different point of view for a change

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Read 18 Mar 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Took me back to the days when nursing training meant learning everything from scratch and was very hands on. Living in the student quarters you were ruled by Home Sister who kept a very close eye on all student nurses. Any misdeamnor was reported to Matron. Those were the days.

4.0 out of 5 stars Things don't change! 17 Feb 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The book is a brief insight to nurse training in the 50's,some humour but mostly descriptive-in the epilogue it is apparent that over 60 years later the same things occur in nursing-quite ironic really how the same problems are still prominent today,a brief book easy read but unable to grow attached to the main character(author)
