In Touch : Nursing in the 60's
What was it like to be a student and a nurse in the 60's? Are there differences between then and now? "In Touch," a memoir of the period, takes a glimpse into the past, as an eighteen-year old enters into residence life of a large, very strict nursing school at a major Montreal hospital. Day by day nursing routines are described along with some personal anecdotes of the student social swirl. As the medical world opens up, the author grapples with life and death issues, and reflects on the changing times in her chosen profession as she matures into her new role as a Registered Nurse. As in "Tangled Webs" by the same author, readers will enjoy the humour sprinkled throughout, alongside the more serious and heart touching moments.
