With uncompromising honesty, Carol Gino strips the TV image to reveal the gritty truths of a nurse’s life, from it’s early, optimistic beginnings to the harsh realities – and incalculable rewards – that sustain her even in the face of a nurse’s greatest professional hazard: burnout. How could she help the family of a terminally ill patient when the doctor can do nothing more? What can she do for a 10-year-old burn victim for whom most of consciousness is pain? How does she convince the doctor of her intuition that the patient cannot survive major surgery at a given time? And how can she leave all this behind at the end of her shift?

The Nurse’s Story’s is one woman’s testament of passionate commitment, a moving and important affirmation of courage, of the power of love, and of tragedy redeemed by compassion. “Few nurses have experienced the range of cases this dedicated woman describes: cancer, the burn unit, emergency ward, birth, brain damage. And she has taken extraordinary measures to help people: given medication against doctor’s orders, withheld medication when she felt a person was supposed to die, eased the sexual tension of a burn victim who’d lost his arms. The writer is a vigorous, optimistic caring woman. And she exudes frankness.”                                                                                                                                                                              -Los Angeles Times
