Joy had wanted to be a Nurse since she was 7. Now, faced with the reality of life as a Student Nurse in London, in the 60's, she is less sure. The author asks you to accompany her on her journey; fictitious, yet based on her experience. Smile as she describes the highs and lows of hospital Life. Hear patient stories; meet her new friends; are the tales of strict Ward Sisters and fierce Consultants true? Above all feel the beating pulse of the NHS, in the latter days of the time when Matron reigned supreme.
