This article, written by an editor of the Wall Street Journal, describes his career side-trip into burn nursing.
The article is extremely well-written and easy to read. It describes this man’s foray into nursing starting at age 40. It also does a great job of describing the bewilderment of being a new nurse, which was my favorite part of the whole article.
It also goes into why he had to leave his short-lived career as a nurse to return to the world of “war and Anna Nicole Smith.”
Too bad. The way he described himself, he sounds like the kind of nurse we need at the bedside.
