Week of May 23-29, 2008

“Half the staff said informal clothes would place the patient at ease, the other half that they would speak more freely to a uniform.”

“And you?”

“I voted for the uniform.  Maybe the initial approach is slower but, as my mother says, women may talk freely to women over the back fence, but they tell their deepest personal secrets only to those in authority.  They feel safe with a nurse.” (p. 11)

--Excerpt from Nurse Kathryn, by Peggy O’More, 1968.

From a gift of over 425 nurse romance novels from Leslie Bellavance.
