Nursing jobs

Tuesday, October 28th, 2014

Sad to say that majority of nursing graduates found it so hard to seek a nursing jobs. Most of the nurses graduates works as call center agents and some works in financial services and transportation. My sister, a nursing graduate and a registered nurse said to me. She became a volunteer nurse in so many hospitals and actually paid lots of money just to be come a volunteer nurse to secure works experience..She said, she spent four years in school and trainings just to gain a said to be job and actually paid an expensive tuition at school yet so hard to find a Job. We cant blame nurses today that they prefer to go abroad just to have a stable job.

The midwife

Friday, October 17th, 2008

Aside from being a nurse, I am also a midwife. I have some collections of medical novels and books.
My midwife friend told me that I should read this book entitled THE MIDWIFE by Gay Courter. Finally I found it in a small bookshop. A novel that I can relate with. This is not an ordinary book for me because I myself is a midwife. I have been looking for this book for a long time. This is a surging powerful and poignant novel of a courageous and dedicated woman, and of many people whose lives she touched, will move you to tears – tears of pain and sorrow – tears of pride and joy. I really like it.

It is a story of a young beautiful midwife who was driven by a passion to help other women bring their babies safely into the world. Every expectant mother she attended, from Russian noblewomen to prostitutes, revealed to her the perils and triumphs of her profession. She fought savage religious prejudice to gain medical training. She fought her own doubts and fears as she plunged into a forbidden love affair and an even more odds facing a Jewish immigrant and the bitter hostility of male doctors in turn-of-the country New York. She fought her burning dreams and desires. She fought and she won. A ‘must read’ book. It recreates a whole world of striving, of love, of lust, of life, death and birth.
