Critical Care: A New Nurse Faces Death, Life, and Everything in Between by Theresa BrownI read this book in 2015 and liked it so much I read the authors other book, The Shift: One Nurse, Twelve Hours, Four Patients Lives. I rated and reviewed both books. This week I discovered that this book, Critical Care was no longer on my bookshelves, rating and review gone. How does this happen?
I always think it must be the Librarians and their combining and renaming of authors. I am a librarian and I only correct errors for books on my shelves and its the same librarian names come up time and again. Why do they come up? Because some of them really dont care about accuracy, only getting to the of the best librarian list possibly, who knows? I dont even know if it is librarian error or something else but cannot think what else it could be.
Goodreads always wants details sent to Support who never have any reasons for why the book has disappeared, nor any way to fix it. I gave up writing on the Feedback thread because the Staff Mods get all wide-eyed and pretend this is the first time this has ever, ever happened and please contact Support.
This is the third book this week. I mind losing the reviews and comments very much.
Anyway the book was fantastic, a non-romantic view of what starting off as a nurse is really like, and, as they say, it aint always pretty.

You are NOT alone if you want to quit nursing. To clarify, nurses are amazing but nursing and being a nurse is not for everyone.

Nursing is our job. And sometimes it sucks and is hard and we wonder why we do it. And then we have a really rewarding moment with a patient that reminds us why. We are nurses. And nursing is just our job. And we get compensated very well for the relatively little education we have. They do the hard work.

I think that's one of my biggest regrets. Hopefully, working as an NP might be a little better than bedside nursing. You should not be crying on your way to work.
