Well worth it.
It is actually a brilliant read even for anyone not involved in Nursing.
Joan started as a cadet, then trained to be a nurse, worked in gp surgeries, prison, sexual sanctary for people that had been involved in sexual attacks. Joan was a cancer nurse - going into peoples homes at nite time to give care to terminal ill people, whilst family gets some rest - I found this sad, but at the same time Joan deeply cared for her patients giving them dignity and great care, made me see a different kind of nursing.
The book was well written and from the heart.
Enjoy your retirement Joan, you deserve it!
