Every moment is an emergency when you’re training to be a nurse!
In nursing school, every day was plagued with the constant pressure of life-and-death crises, the unrelenting fear of failing the patient, the frantic pulse of the hospital heartbeat. Student nurse Carol Welles was determined to become a self-assured professional, but she was a woman as well, who wanted her relationship with medical student Duane Duran to become something more permanent.
From Obstetrics to Intensive Care, from her first injection to her first catheterization, Carol tried to cut down on human suffering…and caused her personal life to suffer at the same time. She was in the field of saving lives…could she discover how to save her own life, too?
