Every author hopes her book will be appreciated, maybe even be inspiring. My hope with Caring Lessons is that it may even save a life.

A recent NPR broadcast reports: “Over the next decade, 80 million baby boomers will be reaching retirement. They will all need a lot more medical care.”

With a national shortage of registered nurses (over a half million projected this decade) and a shortage of nursing faculty that causes nursing programs to turn qualified applicants away, Caring Lessons will encourage readers to think about becoming nurses or stimulate nurses to think about becoming teachers, both of which would address these critical shortages.

Nursing is a challenging and rewarding career–what more  can you ask for?
