Nurses on the Run - Why They Come, Why They Stay

This book is a collection of essays about nursing, why people come into the profession but also why people stay in the profession, with all the stresses and strains of being a nurse.


One of my essays is included in this book. It’s an essay about working in the community, rather than a hospital, as a nurse. I really enjoy working in the community and would never want to go back into hospital nursing.


To read about my essay and how I wrote it can be found in my blog entry here.
