If you have any doubt that nursing is a tough job that only few people can handle. Read this book. You will learn a lot. The author shares her personal experience of working as a nurse and describes the patients and challenges she meets during a 12 hour shift. Great read! ( )

Full review at TheBibliophage.com

I read The Shift: One Nurse, Twelve Hours, Four Patients Lives by Theresa Brown, RN as an audiobook. I love listening to memoirs, since it feels like I'm having a long, albeit one-sided, conversation with a new friend. This is a peek into one oncology nurse's life, via one particular shift.

It happens that Brown also has a Ph.D. in English, and that certainly informs the quality of writing. Brown includes poetry, philosophy, books and their authors, while telling her story in a measured and calm manner. Her writing style is calm, but the life of an oncology nurse certainly isn't. Brown does a terrific job of letting the reader insider her head. The Shift gives the lay person a valuable perspective of a medical caregivers' moment-by-moment balancing act. ( )

Interesting read. A little wordy at times with tangents. ( )

Everyone likes war stories, right? These are ordinary stories from an oncology floor at a teaching hospital, with small victories, small losses, petty patients and graceful ones. If you really like medical stories, this will please, but not otherwise. ( )

This book should be required reading for everyone to help them understand the issues with a healthcare system so focused on profit (yes, even "non-profit" hospitals are focused on profit) that patients' care comes secondary (or is just given lip service to). Ms. Brown does an good job of making me feel as though I am with her on her shift and I'm exhausted just reading about it. I got a bit confused from time-to-time with the who/what/where but, other than that, I found this book to be well worth reading. ( )

If all is supposition, if ending is air, then
why not happiness? Are we so cynical,
so sophisticated as to write off even the
chance of happy endings?

Prologue
A Clean, Well-Lighted Place

The buzz of the alarm surprises me, as it always does. I've been off for a few days and never go to bed early enough before a first shift back. That's the problem with being a night owl at heart.
Chapter 1
7:03am

I hit the floor at 7:03. It should be 7:00, but getting here almost late is my small, immature act of rebellion.
