Product Description

About the Author

Peter Ardern was born and educated in Sheffield. He began his career in psychiatric nursing at Middlewood Hospital, Sheffield before completing his general nurse training at Barnsley. He moved to Portsmouth in 1969 and was promoted to charge nurse in 1971. Working as a counsellor for the elderly, he co-presented a bereavement video package. In 1994 he gained an MSc in social studies and won the Nursing Times's 'Nurse of the Year' award. Retiring in 1994 as a senior nurse after thirty years in the National Health Service, he studied for a PhD in health studies. Peter Ardern lives in Portsmouth with his wife, June, where they are involved in charity work for deaf children, and are researching a further book on nursing.

Format: Hardcover
This book is interesting for nursing historians, but I felt that the writer's style makes it slightly hard going to read and stuffy in places. I certainly could not read it all in one sitting, neither would I want to, unlike some books. Please see my list for my reviews of other nurse history titles.
