The Call of Nursing: Stories from the Front Lines of Health Care  
Feb. 3, 2014
Author:  William B. Patrick
Category:  Non-fiction: Health
Description:  The Call of Nursing is not your typical book about nurses. It takes us behind the curtain of silence that often hangs between us – the patients who rely on the health care system – and the women and men who form the backbone of that system, and who are entrusted with our intimate care. It lets us hear why nurses today do what they do, and it allows those nurses to show us, in their own words, what has mattered most to them in their professional careers.

Drawn from dozens of first-person interviews, The Call of Nursing offers twenty-three inspirational stories from the front lines of health care. The book not only underscores a compelling call to practice, but reveals a deep personal motivation to help people in need.

Rights available:  All translation territories.
Rights already sold:  N/A
Other information:  Stories have an international scope, including Afghanistan, Russia, Pacific Islands, US Naval Hospital in Okinawa, and a maritime nurse who has provided support for ships chasing pirates off the coast of Somalia.
