Overview
The bestselling author of "A Nurse's Story" is back with more insider stories.
Tilda Shalof has been a caregiver all her life -- at home for her family, at work for strangers -- but her skills didn't come easily. From when she was a child taking care of her sick parents to her current position on an ICU team in one of Canada's largest hospitals, there have always been daunting challenges and worthy rewards for her work. With her trademark humour, unflinching honesty, and skilled storytelling, Shalof describes her experiences becoming the capable nurse she is today.
After graduation from nurse's college, finding no jobs in Toronto, Shalof travelled to Tel Aviv, Israel, to work in a hospital for the first time, finding adventure and young love in the process. A summer stint as a camp nurse came with requests for condoms, strange allergies ("Misty has reactions, but we don't know to what"), and overly protective parents (also known as "helicopter parents" for their tendency to hover over their children). "The Making of a Nurse" contains these stories and much more, and they are comforting, entertaining, shocking, funny, heart-warming and heart-wrenching. From hospitals to home care, they will give readers a glimpse into the life of a nurse and the hidden medical world.
