Featured Book: Nursing Jambalaya with Gumbo on the Side by Jacqueline Spencer, Beverly Ward, and Lynell Whittington Brignac

About the book:

Thanks to television, film, and incorrect public perception, there are a lot of misconceptions about the critically important profession of nursing. This entertaining and educational book is the perfect read for those who are already nurses and who want to explore different facets of their career, those who are thinking of becoming nurses, and those who want a greater appreciation and understanding of an amazing calling and way of life. Forget Nurse Jackie, ER, House, and all the rest - this is the real story, told by dedicated nursing veterans. While most of us think of nurses as those providing the office and bedside care that no doctor can do without, Nursing Jambalaya shows the diversity of the nursing profession, including research, education, serving in the armed forces, public health outreach. But the heart of Nursing Jambalaya is the heart of nursing itself: helping patients to recover, and standing by patients and their families during difficult and frightening times. Celebrate a profession built on nurturing, healing, dedication, and selflessness - and have a few laughs along the way, as the authors show you their profession through the eyes of those who have lived and loved nursing for decades.
