Claiming the Corner Office: Executive Leadership Lessons for Nurses: Connie Curran/ Therese Fitzpatrick
It´s easier for pharmacists to get their kids to take medicine, and in this audiobook, I explain why. It makes so much sense for a child to take their medicine, logically. But getting children to take their medicine by justifying it logically is doomed to failure. I´m a dad with three seven-year-old triplet daughters, and I bring you into my thought process when it´s time to give them medicine and how I bring them into the conversation - literally. At worst, you´ll learn a lot about the most common over-the-counter medicines and some of the most prescribed pediatric medicines. At best, you´ll work together so both your sick child and you can get some relief. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Michael Lenz, Gary Furlong.

Anne Watts grew up in a small village in north Wales in the 1940s. Inspired by school geography lessons that told of far-off lands, she broke out of the conventional options open to women in post-war Britain, defying her father’s dated views. She trained as a nurse and midwife, joined the Save the Children Fund and was posted to Vietnam in 1967.One of only three British nurses in the region, Anne witnessed the random cruelty of warfare, nursing injured and orphaned children and caring for wounded and dying servicemen. She went on to take her skills to the victims of Pol Pot’s Khmer Rouge in Cambodia, to Lebanon during the Israeli occupation, and Saudi Arabia during Desert Storm. Over some 45 years Anne has brought her courage and compassion to those most in need of help. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Nerys Hughes.

I´m a healer, not a fighter. Yes, I avoid conflict at all costs. But don´t mistake my pacifism for weakness. I look death in the eye on a regular basis. I´m an RN in the ER - strong, assertive, and capable, with a potent array of sophisticated equipment and medications at my disposal. Exactly one week from the day of my mother´s funeral, an investigator from the Florida Department of Health shows up at the ER and informs me that I may be charged with a felony. Someone is making anonymous complaints that I´m practicing medicine beyond my scope of practice. I have no idea who or why! As the circle of suspects widens, I find it harder to tell where my once unfailing intuition ends and growing paranoia takes over. I repeatedly shove my personal struggles aside as I meet the needs of my patients. But I see them differently now and learn useful lessons from unlikely sources. My world changes in uncontrollable ways. Is it possible that my estranged boyfriend is the snitch? A trusted friend? The anonymous complaints keep coming. As the attacks become more dangerous, I wonder just how far my covert assailant will go to hurt me and how far I´ll go to defend myself when my attacker´s life is placed directly in my hands. Anonymous Complaint is inspired by actual events. This audio version is performed by a cast of 35 unique voice artists. Some scenes include location background sounds and music. 1. Language: English.

From an early age, I knew someday I would be a nurse...I looked for every opportunity I could find to practice my nursing skills. I even dreamed about it. After two years of candy striping, I had learned some valuable lessons about myself. Number one: I didn´t like to be around sick people. Number two: vomit made me vomit.At the age of 30, Janet Izzo decided to make her childhood dream a reality. Sure, she´d had some setbacks, but with the image of Florence Nightingale ever-present, she plowed forward, ignoring her family´s laughter, braving college courses with students nearly half her age, and balancing the roles of wife, mother, and student. Then it happened: she was finally a nurse. But the journey wasn´t over there; in fact, it was just beginning. In Hotel Hennepin: Nurses Can Make the Difference author Janet Izzo, RN shares the joys and struggles of being a nurse. Her dream of caring for mothers and their babies brought her to County Hospital, jokingly known as Hotel Hennepin, where she had the privilege of caring for hundreds of women. Janet tells their stories as only a nurse can, taking readers behind the scenes of this busy obstetric unit where new life begins and sometimes ends on the same day. You will laugh and you will cry as you read the dramatic real-life stories behind the doors of Hotel Hennepin, showing that nursing is more than just a job—it´s a passion. 1. Language: English.

In rural North Carolina, in 1951, despite parental reassurances, a typhoid shot hurt. It hurt even more when the children saw who would be administering the shot - Miss Winnie, a large, dictatorial nurse who had been ´´especially built by the nursing school so she would never blow away in a hard wind.´´ In this hilarious epic tale, our young hero learns three valuable lessons: avoiding pain only heightens it, a mother´s wrath can hurt worse than a shot, and growing up sometimes involves choosing the lesser of two evils. In ´´Tonsils,´´ young Davis comes face-to-face with a creature known as a ´´nurse-nun´´ when he has to get his tonsils removed. This humorous account of a tonsillectomy performed on Good Friday in a Catholic hospital pops with Davis´ usual firecracker wit and humor. For Adults and Young Adults 1. Language: English.
