I read this book in its entirety in one day. I was trying to find at least one positive thing about the nursing profession, but there was none to be found. The book described instance after instance of nurses being mistreated. I am now reconsidering my choice of a profession.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
