Overview

A tragic event starts a doomsday clock on the life of Peter Douglas; the patriarch of the wealthy and proper Douglas family of Boston.

Critical Care immerses us in the intimate themes of the here and now and the unknown space we call faith and destiny. Peter's story keeps the reader on the edge making us think about our priorities and what we are willing to risk fulfilling them?

Everyone who ever questioned the value of the nursing profession should read this book. Theresa Brown offers insight into what a typical work day is for a nurse and how much nurses give of themselves to safely and effectively care for their patients.

As a nurse i found this book easy to read & easy to relate to. It took me back to my first year in nursing. It gave me a few good laughs. Im not sure this book would be interesting if you werent a nurse or in nursing school.

I had trouble putting this book down, except to pause to talk about what I'd read in it. Theresa Brown's account of her first year as a nurse on a cancer floor -- after an earlier career as an English professor -- is wonderfully written, thoughtful, poignant, funny, and enlightening. It speaks to all of us who have ever interacted with the medical system or have contemplated starting a new job. A great read!

This book is great for anyone whi wants to pirsur a nursing career. Theresa gives her own personal accounts as well as her personal opinions on each situation. The book gives the reader great insight on what being a first year nurse is like.

I loved this book!  I started out as an Oncology nurse in a Pittsburgh hospital so this could have been written by me!  It brought back so many memories of my past nursing career.  Al who are considering a nursing career should read this book!

Will have to buy for my daughter, also a nurse, now - looking forward to Theresa's next book. Her writing in the New York Times Well blog is thought-provoking.
